'Fujifilm Shorts' is open to all short filmmakers based in the UK and Ireland, entry is free and entrants can submit as many short films as they like. There is one category with an open brief with two prizes being awarded - 'Best Film' and 'Best Cinematography'.

In addition to the £4,000 worth of Fujifilm film stock up for grabs there is a whole range of other prizes on offer - Technicolor is providing a 'Rushes Package' including film processing, a one light transfer, sync sound and Digi-Beta deliverable. Technicolor Creative Services will also present both winners with a 35mm print of their films for this year's awards screening, printed on Fujifilm’s new print stock, Eterna-CP 3514DI.
Other prizes include: a lighting hire package courtesy of Panalux; Panavision is supplying a 35mm or 16mm Camera and Dolly hire package; a studio hire package from Island Studios; and a year's free subscription to British Cinematographer Magazine.
The cinematographer from the winner of both prizes will also win a free ticket, courtesy of Fujifilm, to the Camerimage International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography, in Poland, December 2011. The prize includes flights, accommodation and industry festival passes. The British Society of Cinematographers will welcome the two winning cinematographers to all BSC social and technical events for a period of one year.
Rushes Soho Shorts and Born Shorts will screen both of the winning films as part of each of their respective festival programmes and Future Shorts will consider both winners for a worldwide distribution deal.
Last year’s Fujifilm Shorts Best Film award went to The Business Trip, shot by DP Angus Husdon, while DP Yoliswa Gärtig's work on Native Son won her the Best Cinematography prize.
