FILMMAKERS of all ages still have just less than four weeks to ‘Make Every Second Count’ by entering the fourth annual Live Life National Film Competition.

It is over three years now since young teenager Donal Walsh sadly lost his battle to cancer.  The impact of his powerful positive message however continues to be spread nationally and internationally through the Live Life Foundation.

The film competition this year has the theme of “Make Every Second Count” and has three categories: primary school, secondary school and third-level/adult.  Entries may be submitted from an individual, a group or entire classes.

Entries may be filmed using phones, cameras or on whatever equipment is available.  The film must be two minutes long and uploaded to Youtube or Vimeo and the link must then be sent to before January 31, 2017.

An awards ceremony will be held on Thursday , February 16, 2017 in the Brandon Hotel Tralee where the top three ranked films in each category will be screened.

Prizes will be awarded and the Foundation will celebrate living life to the full with some well-known TV and sports celebrities.

Winning films will also be screened at the Dingle International Film Festival; Kerry Film Festival and First Cut! Film Festival in 2017.
