As an official EFA category, the EFA YOUNG AUDIENCE AWARD annually presents three European films to 12-14-year-old audiences across Europe.

They watch the nominated films and act as a jury, voting for the winner right after the screenings. In a truly European vote, jury speakers then transmit the national results live via video conference to Erfurt (Germany) where the winner is announced in an award ceremony streamed live on yaa.europeanfilmawards.eu
