As tomorrow will be a pretty bleak day, we thought we'd announce a couple of our prizes to inspire you to make work with a social justice cause at heart. In these murky political times, we are going to need creativity that challenges authority and the status quo. Understanding and resistance has to come through a multitude of voices.
CASH PRIZE: Last year, we awarded £1000 in cash to our winner... whilst we are going to keep you waiting for the exact number, we are happy to say that something similar is in the mix.
MENTORSHIP AND WORK EXPERINCE AT VICE / i-D: Our darling judge, Eloise King, has offered her guidance and a one week work placement with the video team over at VICE and i-D. Whilst you have to be over 18 for this one, it'll be a great chance to see how one of the most well known names in journalism works. You'll also get a tote goodie bag and free copies of the magazine. More details TBC.
SMARTPHONE FILMMAKING KIT: we'll get you a make you up a kit so you can keep making movies!
GAL-DEM PRESS: For a women of colour winner, there will be the opportunity to get your work published on gal-dem's site and a chance to have a piece of your writing included in the next print edition of the magazine.
Lastly, we wanted to add that there will be some cinema tickets and that we are currently plotting away to secure a screening a big London venue. Watch this space!
