2012 winners of the Louisiana Film Prize

The second annual Louisiana Film Prize short filmmaking competition launches today, with $50K to be awarded to the winner. This is one of the largest cash prizes for a short film competition.

The inaugural 2012 competition drew twice as many submissions as had been anticipated, with filmmakers hailing from across the country. "Legend of Luther Anderson," directed by Thomas Woodruff, Noah Scruggs and Chris Armand, took home last year's grand prize (pictured above).

National and international applicants are welcome, but the competition has one homegrown requirement: Submitted short films must be shot in the Shreveport-Bossier area of Louisiana. The deadline for submissions is July 9, 2013.
