OurStage, a new video website and competition, is seeking animated and live-action films to be judged by online voters for a chance to win $5,000. There will be 12 grand-prize winners per year in all categories and other high-ranking filmmakers will enjoy the benefits of exposure and additional accommodations. This competition is open to U.S. residents only.
Filmmakers can go to www.ourstage.com/go/animationmag to create their accounts and upload their works. The films will then go head-to-head with other submissions as visitors to the site rank their favorites and decide which ones move on the monthly finals.
Entries that rise high in the rankings qualify their makers to attend OurStage-organized industry conferences, gain entry into other film fests and earn recognition and other rewards from partners such as Paste Magazine, Gen Art, Noise Pop, The DV Show, the Independent Film Festival of Boston and Film Threat magazine.
