TECNO CAMON 18 short film competition-N1,000,000 up for grabs

Renowned smartphone brand, TECNO, is here again with yet another mind-blowing competition directed at the youths and this time its courtesy of the newly released TECNO CAMON 18 smartphone series.

The CAMON series, known for being the camera-centric device and the CAMON 18, has gone a step further in helping users capture memories not just in pictures but with videos.

Titled the “CAMON 18 Short Film Challenge”, TECNO in collaboration with EbonyLife Creative Academy is directing this competition at the young-at-heart filmmakers who are determined to go the extra mile to achieve their dreams. Young and aspiring filmmakers are encouraged to submit their video entries online for the chance to be a part of this competition.

The EbonyLife Creative Academy (ELCA) is an institution established to equip aspiring and industry film professionals with the practical and technical skills necessary to build a successful career in both the Nigerian and international film markets.

ELCA is supported by the Lagos State Government through Lagos State Creative Industries Initiative (LACI), under the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture.

ELCA’s vision is to build a bridge to Nollywood – the world’s 3rd largest film industry – towards a value chain built on international best practices to deliver filmmakers who can serve both the local and international film and television market, and produce content that introduces Nigeria’s unique style of storytelling to the world.

The best 20 entries would be selected for the next stage of the competition where they would be provided with the necessary toolkit to create their short film stories.

5 winners will emerge from the selected 20 to win cash prizes to the tune of 1 Million Naira, a 1-month Masterclass training at the EbonyLife Creative Academy, as well CAMON 18 Premier smartphones.
