This summer marks the third year for the I Look Up Film Challenge from the American Institute of Architects. This film contest asks for 2-3 minute shorts that “highlight architects and their projects that work to change communities for the better.”

This year’s specific theme is Blueprint for Better, meant to shine a light on how “architects plant the seeds that blossom into stronger neighborhoods, towns and cities.” Check the film below about the revitalization of an intercity neighborhood in Mississippi for some inspiration:

The contest, open to US residents, offers winners up to $5000 in cash, in addition to other prizes including flights to Chicago in September and New York City in November when their films will be screened at the Architecture and Design Film Festival. 

If you’re looking for architects to feature or collaborate with, the AIA encourages you to reach out to its membership. You can find your local chapter here.

If you’re cooking up a film that fits the bill, you must register online by June 26, and submit films by August 13.
