JGFF Storytelling Competition: Call for Entries 

Got some spare time? Possess a talent for writing? Then why not consider entering The Junior Galway Film Fleadh Storytelling competition in association with Galway Film Centre and SpunOut.ie (a leading national youth organisation)

This is the sixth annual Story Pitching Competition and is open to young people between the ages of 10 – 18 years old at primary or secondary school.

If you are interested in competing, you are invited to write a short (500 words) idea for a story. Your idea can be for a feature film, short film, TV series, documentary, web series, video game, animation or even a combined media project.

Begin by drafting your idea then practice it in front of family and friends. Become comfortable relaying the story outline. Because, should your idea be one of the 3 shortlisted, you will be invited to present it in the Town Hall Theatre to an assembled audience and jury during the festival on Friday 13th November 2015. Stories featuring spooky themes are especially welcome but really just use your imagination.

We’d love to hear your ideas!

The Prize – a drama or animation summer camp sponsored by Galway Film Centre which will include 1 year’s membership to the Centre (allowing entry to the RTE short script award ) + weekly newsletter.

Closing date for entries is Friday 30th October!
