2011 SMIBE Kısa Film Yarışması'na son başvuru tarihi 31 Aralık 2011.
With its third annual competition, SMIBE continues to bring together a growing body of moving image stories about the built environment. We hope the competition will become a forum for the exchange and discussion of persuasive issues about the built world. For this competition, SMIBE welcomes moving image stories that investigate, explore, and entertain our communities about social, environmental, political, technological, and economic issues that designers of the built world should be discussing. What are issues that we should be addressing in our built world? To answer this question, SMIBE turns to our talented community of professionals, college and university students from architecture, landscape, art, industrial design, interior design, motion graphics and film to offer a challenge: produce a three minute, engaging and entertaining moving image story about “Building Revolution.” We are looking for stories about memorable characters and building revolutions that have changed or shaped their lives. Enlighten and entertain us with stories of revolutionary change in our built world, either on a personal scale, public scale or somewhere in between. Above all, we look for groundbreaking work that blends rigorous craft with intelligent storytelling. Submissions should not exceed 3 minutes in duration can be produced in any motion image medium. Entry is free. Ten submissions will be chosen as Finalists by a panel of prestigious judges invited by SMIBE. Subsequently, these judges will select one First Place winner, to be awarded a Grand Prize of $500. Upon submission, contestants will be asked to share information about their submissions and themselves on the SMIBE.org website. There will also be an online forum for audiences to discuss the presented work. We hope this sharing of work will inspire us as much as the challenge itself.
Contestants may submit entries on http://www.SMIBE.org beginning December 15, 2011, and ending December 31, 2011. All entries must be submitted no later than 11:59 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on December 31, 2011.
