Further Information

Promoting E-Safety is a high priority for schools, parents and anyone working with young people. We hold an annual E-Safety Competition in association with Safer Internet Day. This aims to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially among children and young people across the world.


This year safer internet day is Tuesday 11th February and it would be great if you would consider running our competition in your school on or around that day.

The theme for Safer Internet Day 2014 is ‘Let’s create a better internet together’. This theme covers the responsibility that all users have in making the internet a better place. Whether children and young people, parents and carers, teachers, industry or politicians, everyone has a role to play.


Children could explore a range of ideas. The theme is quite open to interpretation and creativity.

Entries must be made using any technology such as photography, multimedia presentations, web pages, podcasts, animations or film. This competition is open to Primary and Secondary schools and can be by individuals or small teams of pupils.

There are 3 age categories—Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3.


Prizes will be awarded in each age range.


Closing date for entries is 4pm on Friday 21st March 2014.


The winners will be announced on Friday 4th April. Entries can be submitted in any format by post, council courier or e-mail to julia.small@openzone.org.uk

As part of the competition all entries will be hosted online. All entrants must have permission for their work to be displayed in this way. A signature from a parent/guardian must be obtained on the entry form.
