Following Women and Hollywood’s 10th anniversary, the site is launching a short film contest for first-time female filmmakers.

There will be two winners as well as several runners up.  Winners will each receive $300.  Runners up will all receive $100.

All of the winners and runners-up will have their shorts shown at the Women and Hollywood 10th anniversary events in New York, Los Angeles and London.
