Logo_shortfilmFilm/video equipment manufacturer ikan is running a short film competition in which they'll be giving out $17,000 worth of equipment to winners. The contest is open for any entries 3.5 minutes or less that haven't already been published elsewhere, and asks that viewers follow the theme “Where is the Missing Piece?” $10k of equipment goes to first place, $5k to second, and $2k to third (to go along with the exposure winners receive). Oh, and I'm one of the judges. Deadline is September 6th, 2011; here are the details.

Create a short film that abides by the Judging Criteria stated below and you could win a prize package of more than $10,000, in addition to having your work viewed by some of the industry’s hottest rising stars!

All You Have To Do To Enter Is:
- Create your entry of no more than 3 ½ minutes, making sure to abide by the official rules and judging criteria
