Pepsi Films Barcelona Short Film Contest

Our first challenge is here!

We're going to be in Barcelona in February 2011 and you could be there too.

We’ve picked three themes to inspire you and we want your best, most creative, innovative and refreshing 60 second shorts by January 15 2011. In return you’ll get some amazing prizes and not just cash, though there is a prize fund of $13,000 for each theme.

The first place winner from each theme will also be invited to come spend four days with Pepsi in Barcelona and there, at the Pepsi Films/MOFILM awards, the Barcelona Grand Winner will be announced.

The grand winner then gets the opportunity to work with our Pepsi marketing team in Spain, getting mentoring from them and our advertising agency, BBDO. They’ll also be a production of budget of $20,000 available.

Some Rules
To enter, you need to be over 16 and make sure you include the Pepsi Films intro and outro bumpers within your 60 seconds. That's it.

The Themes
Life in your twenties is not meant to be slow, quiet or calm. Give us an insider peak... Show us what you got with a wake up call!

Gotta love those sounds? It only means one thing...or does it?

You can use our “sounds of refreshment” library for this challenge...or create your own. You will find them in the ‘assets’ on the competition page.

You have the power...tell us what happens when you change that one critical thing?

A few pointers
Remember it's about short films, not commercials. It's about your talent, not our brand. So feel free to put our products in your work, or not. No special favours either way. It's a global competition, so if you don't shoot in English please give us English subtitles Don't use any copyrighted materials, we'll provide music for in the assets folder, and please don't use any other brands' logos and images either. It also needs to be family friendly, so no swearing or nudity.

We've tried to be as unrestrictive as possible, you can find more information and download the brief and assets from the Pepsi Films Barcelona competition page.

You can also ask questions directly to the Pepsi Films team on Twitter and facebook
