Winter is by far the favorite season for many because of the delights that it has to offer. With this occasion, Student Filmmakers challenges you to showcase how winter looks in your part of the world! Even though you live in a place with piles of snow or piles of sand, we are excited to see it through your lens!

This contest is open to the Student Filmmakers community members. In order to enter our contest, you need to create an account (if you haven’t already) on our forums ( Motion Picture Production Forums ), head to the subforum "Winter Photo Contest" and post your photo as a thread in our "Winter Photo Contest" subforum before the deadline.

The contest will take place between 28’th January and 20'th March and the winners will be announced on 27'th March!
