So spread the word. Get everything you need, including detailed instructions, entry form, and the Creative Challenge, here:

Designed to foster media arts skills and bring attention to the next generation of South Carolina content creators, the Young Filmmakers Project is an annual statewide high school filmmaking competition hosted by Trident Technical College and the South Carolina Film Commission.

All South Carolina students grades 9-12 are eligible to enter, including public, private and home schooled students. The Top Ten scorers will screen at a special program where winners will be announced. First Prize receives $500, Second Prize $300, and Third Prize $200.

Use your imagination! Be clever and creative! Most importantly, tell a great story. You could win cash, prizes and a spot on the red carpet.

Deadline for entries is midnight on March 28, 2022.

As part of its training and professional development efforts, the South Carolina Film Commission presents a series of production seminars and training programs each year. All programs are provided to South Carolina residents at no charge and on a regular basis by action of the S.C. Motion Picture Incentive Act, passed by the state legislature in 2004.
