Fast forward 9 months, the entries have been judged and the winner announced as 13-year-old Hannah Mason from Wiltshire.

Zombie Fairy

We loved Hannah's entry, 'Zombie Fairy' – which shows the craft and graft that goes into film-making to encourage people to support the UK film industry.

As part of her prize, Hannah received an all-expenses-paid trip with her classmates, to the Aardman studio in Bristol - the home of Wallace & Gromit, Morph and Shaun the Sheep. Here they had an exclusive meeting with the Aardman production team about bringing her winning storyboard to life.

Into Film Festival

This 30-second film is currently being screened to hundreds of thousands of young people at over 2,700 screenings and events as part of the UK wide Into Film Festival.

The festival enables young people aged 5-19 to learn through and about film, interact with filmmakers and explore filmmaking. This promotes traditional and visual literacy and encourages critical thinking.

Although the competition is now closed, there are still a fantastic host of teaching resources for Creating Movie Magic available online.

The resources aims to teach young people about the value and importance of copyright to creativity, encouraging them to view films legitimately through 'above board' channels, like This has been awarded a coveted 5 stars by the Times Education Supplement for its relevance to the 2014 National Curriculum.
