ShoutOUT! Last Call for National Youth Film Awards 2018 Submissions


The National Youth Film Awards (NYFA), which seeks out the best (and the young and fresh) in the filmmaking industry in Singapore is now back with a brand new Open Youth Category, apart from the regular Media Student Category which receives submissions from all media schools in Singapore. This new category is open to submissions from all youths, aged between 15 – 35 years old, with or with out formal media training, residing in Singapore. So it's good news if you are one of those constantly armed with a camera and fire in your belly about filmmaking but is not from a film school or course.

A jury panel consisting of renowned names in the local media industry will assess the award submissions across 26 award categories, including Best Sound , Best Production Design , Best Cinematography , Best Screenplay , Best Direction , and Best Picture.
 
 
NYFA offers a path towards a professional career in film, recognising youths who are highly skilled in their respective fields across the spectrum of the industry and celebrates excellence in filmmaking in Singapore. Prizes will not only include cash prizes st arting at $1000 and up, but also, among others, selected professional film courses worth $15,000, professional equipment such as the Ursa Mini Pro worth more than $8,000, fast track access to film grant applications and concrete opportunities to work with film prof essionals. A highlight of NYFA 2018 will also be the opportunity for winners to get their films distributed regionally.
 
Winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony to be held on 28 July 2018.
