NCAC Youth Free Expression Film Contest

NCAC Youth Free Expression Film Contest
NCAC Youth Free Expression Film Contest is open to high school students age 19 and under. Students can enter the contest by submitting a film that expresses their belief in their First Amendment rights and the issue of Free Speech.

All entries are judged by writers, actors, and filmmakers and evaluated based on content, artistic and technical merit, and creativity. Films can be documentaries, animation, experimental, satire, fictional narrative, or music and must be four minutes or less. Applicants must be U.S. citizens.

Three winners are chosen to receive cash prizes and a trip to New York City to attend the Youth Voices Uncensored event. The first-place winner also receives a scholarship to the New York Film Academy.

Since 2005, the National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC) has been rewarding youth for their outstanding work in film. The purpose of the film contest is to encourage youth to use film creatively to express their feelings about free speech.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in DECEMBER of each year, and the award amount is usually $250 - $5,000.
