Alongside our main ceremony and the announcement of the winners of our Gold and Silver Screens in our main categories, we announced the winners of our Born To Create Drama contest, during our live Pre-Show. The contest was free-to-enter, and open-to-everyone, and the brief was simple. Create a film of up to three minutes, with the tagline ‘Born To Create Drama’.
That line has been with the YDA for more than 15 years, thank to TBWA/Helsinki, and has been to used to convey the spirit and ethos of our award, and as a basis for our own films to promote the award.
Entries to the Born To Create Drama contest were judged first by the YDA team, and then by a public vote.
And the winner of the public poll, with a total of over 1300 votes is… The Catch, directed by Oliver Bernotat
The entry selected as ‘President’s Pick’, as chosen by YDA President, François Chilot is…Just Dance, directed by Kelsey Larkin.
Both winners were announced during our live Pre-Show, where you can watch both films in full now:
