For the first time, we are opening up all three categories (see below) to budding directors, who have been working outside of a filmschool or who have recently graduated. Every director who has been working for less than two years in the free market is allowed to take part.
Furthermore, we would like to notify you that the special category “Automobile” from last year will be continued: We are offering the opportunity to your students and to all other young talents to submit one or more works to this category. We do not set limits on creativity – any idea, any method of implementation, as well as the use of any car brand (not just "Porsche") is welcome. Films made in a classical format up to a length of 90 seconds are eligible, as well as films done in an alternative format (for example, branded short, Internet version, integrated campaign, etc.) up to a length of 5 minutes. The films should be/have been completed within the range of October 10th, 2012 and September 24th, 2014. Deadline for submissions is Wednesday, the 24th of September 2014.
The award in this category totals at 3,918 €, in honor of the Porsche Model 918. We think this is an amount that should motivate and encourage filmmakers to realize further projects in time for the submission! Important is to keep in mind, that the creativeness behind the idea and staging of the brand is more appreciated than the production value.
The other two categories will remain as in the past (films without reference to automobile brands): Advertisements until 90 seconds can be submitted to the category for TV, Cinema, and Internet advertisement. All other formats until 5 minutes can be submitted to the category for Campaigns, Branded Entertainment, Mobile Productions, Trailers, etc. In contrast to the Automobile category, only students may submit films to these two categories. Deadline for submissions for these two categories is Friday, July 18th, 2014.
Please be aware that the current information regarding submission and award money as well as the submission form can be found here.
