We regret to announce that the 2021 CSES Video Contest has been cancelled due to low interest and registration. We're disappointed to have to make this decision. Unfortunately, the number of submissions we are expecting to receive isn't enough to properly and fairly conduct the contest as we originally set out to do. If you were among those working on a video to submit for the contest please email us at – we apologize for the disappointment and the inconvenience.

Video Topics

Choose one or more options below. You may enter more than one video.

  1. Social media plays an increasing role in sexual exploitation. How do we help kids understand the need to stay safe on social media?

  2. Indigenous women and girls are far over-represented among those victimized by sexual exploitation in Canada. How can we help all Canadian young people become aware and involved in this problem?

  3. There are three key groups of people in sexual exploitation; those being sold, those who sell, and those who buy. More attention needs to be paid to those who buy. How can we address this area?

  4. The cause of ending sexual exploitation attracts female involvement. How can boys and men get more involved in this issue?

  5. Pornography is often viewed by young people on a regular basis, making it the sex educator of today. How does pornography interact with the issue of sexual exploitation?
