Due to repeated requests, the Shreya R. Dixit Foundation has decided to extend the deadline for the Distraction-Free Driving PSA contest to April 30th. You now have an additional two weeks to enter your Public Service Announcements.
The foundation is looking for PSAs of 60 seconds or less that illustrate the importance of safe and distraction-free driving practices. Official selections will have a special screening at the EDU Film Festival on May 15th. Our new partnership with the Annual EDU Film Festival and Independent Film Project of Minnesota for our First Distraction-free Driving PSA Contest for 21 years old or younger residents of Minnesota or Connecticut. All semifinalist entries will be screened on May 15, 2015 at the Show Place ICON Theaters, St. Louis Park, Minnesota.
Grand Prize is an approved college level production or screenwriting course at IPR College of Creative Arts for high schoolers. The winner of the non-high school submission will receive a $150 in cash. If you are in a driver-ed program, you may qualify for an additional $200 cash reward.
The new due date for submission is April 30. It is a great opportunity to demonstrate your passion for film production and get your video camera out.
