Director Ron Howard and daughter/actress Bryce Dallas Howard have teamed up to jump on the user-generated content bandwagon with the new film contest for Canon, "Project Imaginat10n." A number of celebrity directors are getting involved in the project, including Eva Longoria, James Murphy, Georgina Chapman and Jamie Foxx, who recently starting shooting his short film in Brooklyn.

The film stars Tyrin Turner, Foxx's longtime friend and the star of "Menace II Society," and Foxx's "Django Unchained" co-star Nichole Galicia. Howard, along with Foxx's mentor on the set, David West, paid on-set visits during shooting.

Beginning June 4, filmmakers of all skill levels can submit up to five photographs per 10 storytelling prompts -- among them, "setting," "mood," "backstory" and "the unknown." Submissions close in the fall and after a judging panel selects finalists in mid-October, Ron Howard and a public vote will determine 91 winning photographs. 

Then, directors will choose 10 photos, one per theme, to set the stage for their own short films. Five winning consumer-generated films based on the photos will premiere at the Project Imaginat10n Film Festival along with the celebrity films. Bryce Dallas Howard, who recently directed a photo-inspired short called "when you find me," will act as mentor to the filmmakers as she unrolls a new web series, "Bryce's Project Imaginat10n Film Contest Tutorial."

Check out the contest here.
