The competition was run to mark the arrival of the The Lego Movie (U) and the young film makers were asked to make a short film using stop frame animation.

Judging took place at a special screening on Friday.

The standard was so high it was a difficult task for the judges on the day – Jan Whitbourn, of Tulip FM; Dan Skerritt, SHC projectionist; Chrissie Redford, of the Spalding Guardian and Lincs Free Press; and representatives from Beales Department Store Brenda Morgan and Karen Kelso – and others who were absent.

There were two categories – 14 and over and under 14s.

Winner of the under-14 category with Mayhem at the Movies was Sam Maxwell (13) and 14 and over winner with Lego Movie Audition was Jack Howard.

Their films are being shown ahead of The Lego Movie, which runs until Thursday. Winners also received £25 worth of Lego, courtesy of Beales Department store and four free tickets to any showing of The Lego Movie (U).
