Calling All Budding Filmmakers: SHOWstudio Launches Fashion Film Award

This week, Nick Knight announced the brief for SHOWstudio’s first ever Fashion Film Award, saying,“I’ve wanted to do a fashion film award for a long time. Fashion and movement is very important – when a designer creates a piece of clothing, it’s always to be seen in movement and I think fashion film is the best way of doing that. I wanted to encourage new young fashion filmmakers, to really help them to embrace this new medium – and to create this new medium – it really has to be created”.

The winner will receive £10,000 to create a film for SHOWstudio with mentoring from Nick Knight, along with RED Digital Cinema’s latest professional camera – RED Raven, a Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art lens and a trip to Australia to attend an exclusive screening of their film.

The competition is open to budding filmmakers from across the globe. Entrants must submit their film, of no longer than 5 minutes in duration, via unlisted YouTube link by Monday 4th January 2016. Following review, submissions will be added to an online gallery. View the full brief at
