Are you an aspiring filmmaker and a Florida resident (or non-resident college/university student)? Enter for your chance to be featured in a special program at this year’s Gasparilla International Film Festival!

Rules & Guidelines

Theme: Go local. Focus on the faces and places, the telling details and the big pictures in the Tampa Bay area. Local color, local legends, local life — whatever “local” means to you.

Guidelines: Submit up to three (3) photographs or three (3) short videos that speak to the “Local” theme. You must be a resident of Florida to enter; non-residents who are enrolled in Florida colleges and universities are also eligible. Official Rules available here.

Entry fee: $5 per photo or video.

Submissions: We will accept submissions at cltampa.com/visions from Thurs. Jan. 24 at noon to Thurs. Feb. 28 at 5 p.m.

Voting: Readers’ Choice voting begins Wed. Feb. 20 at 9 a.m. and continues through Thurs. Feb. 28 at 5 p.m. Register or sign in to vote for your favorite photo or video.

Judging: For the Photo Contest, the top 10 judges’ choices and the top 3 readers’ choices will be printed in our Photo Issue on Mar. 21, and shown in a gallery exhibition at the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, with the winners announced at an awards reception at the museum. The video finalists will also be listed in the Mar. 21 issue, and their work will be screened and the winners announced during the Gasparilla International Film Festival on Fri. Mar. 22.
