Essence Short Film Contest Specs

Deadline 12/05/13

Enter the Essence short film contest here.

For six years, ESSENCE has honored Hollywood’s top Black image-makers, including actresses, directors, writers and producers.

This year, we’re excited to discover a fresh new voice to welcome into our Black Women in Hollywood family. That’s why we’re launching a short film contest seeking visions of Black women that are multidimensional, ones that are different from the stereotypical and often negative images that respondents in a recent, ground-breaking ESSENCE study told us don’t truly reflect the totality of who they are.

Filmmaker Challenge: Write and direct an original short film, no more than 20 minutes long, that presents an image of a Black woman in a unique, refreshing way.

Video Specs: 3GB Max. File Size; File Types: .mp4 or .webm
