Montana Meth Project puts out call to enter national commercial competitionMarch 06, 2016 - KPAX
The Montana Meth Project is calling on filmmakers to submit 30-second creative commercials for a national competition.
The winnings include a grand prize of $20,000 and nationwide airtime.
Previous commercials have influenced viewers through graphic campaigns depicting addicts with organizers saying that this is an opportunity for filmmakers to influence coming generations of teens to keep their distance from the drug.
Executive Director Amy Rue says that Montana teens have been leading the fight against meth abuse for over 10 years now.
“I think we’ve all had our experiences with meth in our own towns, and certainly among, uh, across the state. This contest then provides a great venue for Montanans to raise their voice, tell their own story, and then share it with the world in a digital format,” Rue said.
The final due date for commercial entries– which will be judged on everything from cinematography to screen writing — is May 31. The Montana Meth Project will select 10 of the best candidates to showcase at Series Fest in Denver.
The winner will be announced on Sept. 1.
