The prestigious DBGYFF Awards are chosen by the board of experienced juries, who decide the winners. The list of awards include Global bests and Regional bests.
I GLOBAL BESTS
Global Bests are chosen from the best entries that come from every region. There will be ten Global awards – five bests for Juniors and five bests for Seniors.
I REGIONAL BESTS
Regional Bests are the awards given for the 10 best short films from every region. The entries are classified as per the
seven regions : South Asia, East Asia – Oceania, Africa – Madagascar, Inter America, America South Cone, Northern &
Central Europe, Middle East & European region.
The 10 Regional bests of every region will be distributed equally among the two categories, 5 Regional Junior bests and 5 Senior Regional Bests.
The 100 Local Bests are the prizes awarded to encourage the participation from every province (as per the geographical jurisdiction of the Salesian Congregation). For every 100 entries that come for the festival from a province, five films are shortlisted by the Province Local Team and 100 Euros each will be given as a cash award to those five entries. For every hundred entries from a province 5 local best awards will be given. This is purely decided by the province.
