  • Sentinelle (http://www NULL.dailymotion
  • Aéroport (http://www NULL.dailymotion
  • Translator’s happiness (http://vimeo
  • The sitting dog (http://www

CEATL’s international video contest was organised for the first time last year. This year three times as many videos were sent in. The jury was impressed by the quality of the videos.

The CEATL jury congratulates the 14 finalists, and wants to thank all participants in the competition as well as all those who took the time to watch the videos and vote for their favourite. The winner of the award of 1,000 Euro will be chosen by the jury and announced on Monday 16 September 2013.
