How to enter

There’s no limit to the number of films you can enter, but each film must be no more than four minutes in length, related to the theme of identity and you must be a UK resident to enter. We know that filmmaking is often a collaborative process, so if you’d like to enter a group project, nominate one person to submit your film (they must be a UK resident).

WexShorts Competition


The theme: Identity

Identity makes you you and others them. It’s a product of one’s genetics, culture and experiences. It defines both one’s individuality and belonging, and it ultimately helps to shape the person one might become in the future. In this WexShorts competition, we want you to identify what identity means to you, through the medium of film. So long as you can link your submission back to the theme of identity, we want to encourage you to be as creative and as imaginative as possible.


'DAY ZERO' by Jamie Hancock took the winning spot in our last WexShorts competition with the theme of sustainability. See all of the entered films below.  


The judging process

It doesn’t matter whether you’re shooting on an entry-level DSLR or a high-end cinema camera; we’re looking for films that display the following:
- Quality of narrative
- Visual creativity and cinematography
- Originality
- Relevance to the theme of sustainability
- Quality of editing and sound design
