The ESSENCE magazine short film contest is designed to highlight the “journeys and triumphs” that have been experienced in the lives of many black women over the years. The contest will also provide an opportunity to showcase a more realistic image of black women versus the image often portrayed of them in the media.
Contest submissions will be accepted from November 1st through December 15, 2013. Some of the contest judges include actress Regina King and executive producer Shonda Rhimes, creator of the hit series’ “Scandal” and “Grey’s Anatomy”.
