DepicT! Filmmaking Competition Opens for 2020 Entries

| Return|

DepicT! is an international short film competition which seeks to unearth up-and-coming film-making talent in the UK.

The contest is open to applications from filmmakers with productions that last no longer than 90 seconds but still manage to show originality, imagination and the ability to engage audiences. Films can focus on a wide range of genres, including animation, documentary, drama, experimental or artist film and hybrid work.

The competition carries the following prizes in 2020:

  • Main DepicT! Award - £1,500 cash + Lifetime membership to Shooting People.

  • DepicT! Royal Photographic Society Cinematography Award - £1,000 cash.

  • DepicT! British Special Mention Award - A special package of support which will both promote the winning 90-second film and further develop the filmmaker’s skills.

  • DepicT! Random Acts Special Mention Award - An opportunity to be featured on Channel 4’s Random Acts platform and a chance to pitch for a new Random Acts commission.
