On the 20th March 2012 the winners of the Young Film Critic awards were announced at a glitzy ceremony at BAFTA, Piccadilly presented by Andy Akinwolere. You can see photographs of the ceremony and read the winner's full reviews here.

The winners of the 4-7 and 7-11 category received a trophy, an iPod touch, a webcam and ‘I Can Animate’ software, whilst the winners of the 11-14 and 15-19 category received a trophy and an iPad 3.

This year we also awarded a School Prize to St. Elizabeth Primary School, Bethnal Green for an excellent video review of Ponyo, as well as a Jury Prize to Molly Stapleton from Walsall for her enthusiastic video review of Paul.

You can watch their winning video entries by visiting the Young Film Critic site, where you can also find Top Tips on how to film your own film review, as well as other learning resources on review writing.
