Back in October we challenged young readers to adapt an extract from Nation by Terry Pratchett, as Mark Ravenhill's staging of the book is being performed at the National Theatre this winter.
We can now reveal the shortlist that judges - Terry Pratchett, Mark Ravenhill, Guardian theatre critic Lyn Gardner and National Theatre director Nicholas Hytner - are currently mulling over, as they make the difficult decision as to who will win, and have their films screened as part of the NT Live event on January 30.
Many thanks to all entrants for taking part; the winners will be announced in the next few weeks.
The shortlists for each age category are:
Freya Roberts, 12, Cranleigh
Angel Ssemanda-Nakirayi, 12, London
Zoe Woolley, 12, London
Ollie Inglis, 13, Aberdeen
Billy Godfrey, 14, Oxford
Katie Ager, 16, Ryde
Scarlett Marshall, 16, London
Natalie Holness, 16, Folkestone
Samantha O'Rourke, 17, Middlewich
Lucy Sutcliffe, 17, Witney
