10 year old Jason Bangar wins our Centenary Competition
Jason, who lives in Birmingham, has had his own specially designed BBFC Black Card design shown at the start of every cinema screening of the U rated blockbuster Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days.
He entered a design after his teacher saw the competition advertised here on the BBFC Children's website. The competition was part of the BBFC's 2012 centenary celebrations, with all entries judged by staff from the BBFC and also 20th Century Fox.
Judges agreed all entries were of an incredibly high and creative standard. It was very tough to decide on a final winner.
However, everybody agreed that Jason's design was the winner, and it has been praised by one of the biggest names in the British film industry. Lord Puttnam of Queensgate CBE, a very experienced film producer who is also President of the Film Distributors' Association, loved the design.
Jason's picture became the official BBFC card for Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days and was seen by thousands of people before showings of the film across the UK. Two other pupils from the same school as Jason were also given a ‘highly commended’ for their designs.
