In February 2018, we launched the second annual PushPlay short film contest.

We received over 500 submissions and following a judging process consisting of a public vote and a meticulous review by an expert panel, we're excited to announce the four winners.

The overall grand prize winner will take home $15,000 of filmmaking gear and three category winners (Narrative, Documentary and Animation) will each be awarded with a $3,000 editing system.

Thank you to everyone who submitted work to the contest and a huge congratulations to the winners!
