Filmmakers and TikTokkers show a positive Frame of Mind in 2021/22 competition shortlist

Walk in My Shoes is excited to announce the shortlist for our 2021/22 Frame of Mind short film and TikTok competition. 

Frame of Mind invites school students and filmmakers in Ireland to enter short, shareable films and TikToks which raise positive mental health awareness or tackle mental health stigma.

Entries opened last November, with a strong response for each of our four categories. Following a new TikTok category for secondary schools being brought in to last year’s competition, this is the first time we’ve introduced a general TikTok category too.

You can find the Frame of Mind shortlist below.

Thank you to everyone who entered! Our judging panel now has the difficult task of selecting the winners of each category. Those who come in first place in each category will receive a €1,000 prize, with a category runner-up also being given a €500 prize.

We’ll be announcing the winners and sharing their entries at a very special online awards ceremony at 12pm on Thursday, 24 March 2022: you can watch the ceremony on our website here or from our YouTube channel on the day.

We wish the very best of luck to everyone nominated!
