The jury awards prizes in three different age categories as well as the award for the most innovative film. In this category it is not so much the cinematic perfection that counts but rather the thematic or formal innovation in the context of the contemporary media landscape. The audience award is voted for by the audience. Also there is a local artist award. A jury consisting of students will vote for what they consider to be the best film from the area of Upper Austria. The film will be chosen from all entries coming out of Upper Austria, regardless of the age category.
For the past six years we have invited young artists to design the prizes themselves. This means that those who are awarded a prize at YOUKI receive handcrafted pieces of art as their trophies.
