Time running out for YDA 2010 Entries

The deadline for entries to the 2010 Young Director Award is just days away. But if you haven’t entered yet, don’t worry, there’s still time.

Head over to the Young Director Award website to submit your work by April 15th. And if you’re still undecided, check out interviews with previous winners like Aleksander Bach, Ben Woolf, Kosai Sekine and Christian Bevilacqua to find out how winning the YDA boosted their careers.

Winners will have their work screened to a captive audience of movers and shakers from the worlds of advertising and production. What’s more there’s 3,000 metres reels of Kodak 35mm film up for grabs. And lots of lovely career-boosting exposure in shots magazine. Plus shortlisted entries will be screened in front of an industry audience at the Cannes advertising festival.

Rules:
Entries will be accepted until April 15th 2010.
Divided into two sections (European and Non-European), the YDA includes 5 categories:
• Broadcast commercials
• Web films
• Branded short films
• Film school commercials
• Test commercials
You can enter your film on line at www.youngdirectoraward.com
One submission rule: films that are submitted have to be among the first four commercials ever made by a director the year preceding the award.

The films are judged by a panel of established producers belonging to the CFP-E as well as Lyndy Stout, Editor at Large for Shots magazine.

This year’s YDA ceremony will take place on Wednesday, June 23rd in Cannes (France). Winning directors will benefit from exposure to the advertising industry and will receive up to
3,000 meters of 35 mm film by Kodak our main sponsor.

Further information concerning the submissions is available on the offical YDA website (https://www.youngdirectoraward.com) or by contacting
