reed.co.uk launches third annual short film competition

 Aspiring filmmakers are being given another opportunity to win top prizes and priceless industry exposure, as leading UK job site, reed.co.uk, launches its third annual short film competition.

 The online competition, which is open to everyone regardless of their film making credentials, will challenge filmmakers to create a short film centred on the theme, ‘The Boss.’

An expert panel of judges, to be announced early next year, will choose this year’s Grand Prix winner, who’ll take home a £10,000 cash prize, a year’s membership of London’s Hospital Club and a year’s subscription to Shooting People.

In addition to the Grand Prix, prizes of £1,000 will be awarded to additional category winners, including the ‘People’s Choice Award’ and ‘Best Animation’.

Mark Rhodes, Marketing Director at reed.co.uk, explains how the previous two competitions have exposed a rich seam of creative talent:

 “The shorts we’ve seen in the last two competitions have been inspiring, so we were really keen launch this year’s competition and start showcasing more talent.

 “At reed.co.uk, our business is all about giving people opportunities and the Short Film Competition has been an excellent way of doing this for creative talent: our first winner went on to win the coveted Virgin Media Shorts competition and was long listed for a BAFTA.”

 Rhodes continues: 

 “We’re extremely proud to be continuing our support for short film and, this year, we’re delighted to have the support of The Hospital Club as a headline partner. This partnership will allow us to reach more filmmaking talent and further strengthen the position of the reed.co.uk Short Film Competition in the UK film industry.”

The deadline for entries is 25 March 2012. Full details of this year’s competition, including information on how to enter, can be found at reed.co.uk/film.

Apply now for Mentoring and Investment Readiness. Deadline: 9 December 2011

15 November 2011: Applications are now open for two exciting new programmes of support for the creative industries in the South West.

Investment Readiness will help participating business leaders develop an investment proposition which is more likely to generate investor interest.

Leaders of small to medium sized enterprises (SME) from any creative sector will receive workshops, pitching session and free advice session from legal partner Thrings and accountants Baker Tilly. Sessions will take place in Bristol in the first three months of 2012.

Mentoring, established in conjunction with NESTA, is a programme which allows business leaders to get expert advice from highly successful creative entrepreneurs.

Throughout 2012, leaders of SMEs accepted onto the Mentoring programme will receive advice sessions with a proven, experienced creative business leader; one-day workshops to make sure they get the most from their mentoring; and one-to-one sessions with a specialist business coach to help them stay on track.

South West Screen Innovation Director Anthony Story said: “Creative companies are often set up by people with creative-led expertise; however this doesn’t diminish their commitment to growing solid and successful businesses.

“These two programmes provide creative people with access to expert management advice. This advice will allow them to place their creative venture onto a firm business footing; developing clear business strategies and securing growth by commercialising new innovation.”

The Mentoring and Investment Readiness programmes are supported by the Creative Industries iNet, part of Solutions for Business, funded by the European Regional Development Fund and led by South West Screen.
