It's YOUR turn (and stop by Saturday to see what this year's winners have accomplished!)

The Park School of Communications is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual David R. Ames Film Award. This award is designed to inspire creativity and recognize the talents of young scriptwriters and filmmakers. Thanks to the generosity of David R. Ames '72 and matching funds from the Park School this award will provide funding up to $10,000.00 to produce the winning original script selected by a panel of faculty judges.

All full-time Park students are eligible and encouraged to submit a short narrative script for consideration. Finalists will be asked to put together a production team filling all key crew positions, a production proposal and pitch their projects to the award committee. Script deadline is at 5:00pm on Thursday, September 3, 2009.

The selected projects team will be enrolled in a 1-credit mini course during the SP10 semester. Projects funded by this award can not be submitted towards any other credit bearing course. The award will go towards the production of a short, narrative script to be shot over Spring Break 2010.

The much anticipated screening of this year's David Ames Award winners will be on Saturday, May 9 at 9:00pm in the Park Auditorium.
