Applications are now open for the Directors Guild’s 20th Annual DGA Student Film Awards.

Now in its 20th year, the DGA’s Student Film Awards seek to put a spotlight on diversity, with dozens of African American, Asian American, Latino, and women filmmakers having been past recipients of the top prizes. 

Winners in each category receive a $2,500 cash prize, with their films screened in a special ceremony at the DGA Theater. Winners of the jury awards in each category receive $1,000 and screen clips of their films at the DGA.

Recent Indie Spirit winner Ryan Coogler (“Fruitvale Station”) is a previous recipient of the Student Prize.

The application period runs from April 7 through October 6, 2014, with winners announced in November. More info on contest rules and how to apply is here.
