Jury Statement: The film shows great creativity and sensitivity in expressing the theme "our now, our future.” In a simple and understandable way, she powerfully voices for many teenagers who are impeded to pursue what they really like. From the girl's indomitable eyes, we could see a possibility, which may be called a bright future.

Jury Statement: "Hold Me" has a simple yet powerful message about a topic seldom discussed: the unique relationship between a mother and a child. Well-crafted and subtle, this video's tender portrayal gives us all a reason to pause.
