Do you have what it takes to break into the film industry? If so, D&AD wants to hear from you. Established in 1962 by a collective which includes legendary fashion photographer David Bailey, the non-profit organisation has been working tirelessly for decades to showcase the brightest minds in a range of creative industries. Better still, anyone can get involved – applications are currently open for the prestigious Next Director Award, a title which comes accompanied by industry mentorship, widespread exposure and the chance to launch your next film exclusively on NOWNESS.
Applicants are not restricted by genre; the competition accepts all kinds of film submissions including – but not limited to – commercials, documentaries, and music videos. The only stipulations are that entries must not be over five minutes in length and filmmakers must have less than two years’ industry experience.
