The Poetry Projection Project is an annual video contest held by WritersCorps, an award-winning creative writing program for youth—a project of the San Francisco Arts Commission and the San Francisco Public Library. WritersCorps calls on filmmakers and video artists of all ages to create work based on youth writing. Videos will be screened at an event during National Poetry Month in April 2013 and online at WritersCorps.org.
WritersCorps will award three $250 cash prizes:
– One prize to the best film made by an adult age 23 and over
– One prize to the best film made by a young person age 17-22
– One prize to the best film made by a young person age 16 and under
Entries will be juried by special guest juror, filmmaker H.P. Mendoza.
In keeping with WritersCorps’ mission of helping youth through creative expression, the Poetry Projection Project engages filmmakers to explore the power of young people’s words and voices.
