The jury of 12-to-14-year-old filmgoers from cities in Germany, Poland, the U.K., Italy, Denmark, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Latvia and Malta, voted on the second-annual Young Audience honor, picking Zig Zag Kid from a group of three finalists.

The drama, in which a 13-year-old Jewish boy teams up with a master-burglar to commit crimes together, is the second Dutch film to win the Young Audience Award, following last year's inaugural win for Boudewijn Koole's Kauwboy.
