Now is your chance. Make a short film about why video games are important to you. Is it the stories, the graphics, the challenge, the teamwork? How does it feel when critics talk about video games, and gamers? Are there times when you think video games actually go too far? This year's deadline is December 13 and, as always, our contest is free to enter and as easy as submitting a link to a YouTube video!

All films must be produced in 2013 and address the contest theme. Contestants must be either living in the U.S. or its territories (but need not be citizens), and must be age 19 or younger on the day the film is submitted. Films will be judged on content, artistic and technical merit, and creativity. Judges will be drawn from a panel of renowned writers, actors, and filmmakers.

The top three winners receive:

  • Cash prizes of $1,000, $500, and $2500
  • A trip with a guest to New York City to attend the Youth Voices Uncensored event in the spring.
  • A one-year complimentary student membership to the Rubin Museum of Art.
  • The first place winner will received a free one-week digital fillmmaking course at the New York Film Academy, plus a $5,000 scholarship toward any one-, two-, or three-year NYFA program .
