LONDON, February 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Are you a short-film maker? Would you like to win £10,000? Well take note, as the reed.co.uk Short Film Competition is looking for your entry right now.
Here's the pitch:
We're looking for up-and-coming, talented and exciting filmmakers, to create a short film (three minutes max), centred on the competition's theme: 'The Boss.'
You may be a student, amateur or a seasoned pro. You may choose to shoot your work on 33mm film or just on your mobile. Whoever you are, however you make your film, by entering, you'll be in with a chance of winning the £10,000 Grand Prix - and some priceless industry exposure.
The jobs site's competition, now in its third year, will be judged by a panel of industry professionals, who are looking for original ideas, inspiring scripts and great execution. They'll choose this year's Grand Prix winner, who will take home a £10,000 cash prize, membership to London's Hospital Club and a year's subscription to Shooting People.
In addition to the Grand Prix, prizes of £1,000 will be awarded to additional category winners, including the 'People's Choice Award' and 'Best Animation'.
Mark Rhodes, Marketing Director at reed.co.uk, explains how the previous two competitions have exposed a rich seam of talent and created genuine opportunities for the winners:
"The shorts we've seen in the last two competitions have been inspiring, so we're really keen to see what this year's competition brings, so we can start showcasing even more talent.
"At reed.co.uk, our business is all about giving people opportunities - and not just across our 42 job sectors, including Admin, IT jobs and Sales jobs. The Short Film Competition has been an excellent way of doing this for creative talent: our first Grand Prix winner went on to win the coveted Virgin Media Shorts competition and was long listed for a BAFTA, whilst one of last year's winners has since gone on to make a national TV ad for us. "
"We're extremely proud to be continuing our support for short film and this year we're delighted to have the support of The Hospital Club as a headline partner. This partnership will allow us to reach more filmmaking talent and further strengthen the position of the reed.co.uk Short Film Competition within the UK film industry."
The deadline for entries is 25 March, 2012. Full details of this year's competition, including information on how to enter, can be found at http://www.reed.co.uk/film.
