One year. 52 Weeks. 

In that time we view a plethora of works that send us running to our judges. Actors, Music, scripts, lighting...

So much goes into your creations. Isn't it time you had some immediate payoff?

Here at 52 Weeks, we choose winners every week -hence the name- and at the end of our quarterly judging cycles we post the winners, refresh the selection and allow others their turns. More chances for you to win with every entry.

We started years ago as staff at the Port Hueneme International Film Festival. Since then we've held positions from Actors ourselves, writers, the staff at various entertainment companies and festivals.

Now? Now we open our own to solve what we felt was a need. You make something, you're ready to share it, to start getting laurels and get out there. Who wants to wait MONTHS?

Our Website is updated Weekly with our winners and emails/notifications go out on scheduled date.

Laurels. Let's be honest, it's all about the laurels.

You need them to get into bigger and better places, have distributors take you seriously; to show that 'Yes, this is really something and others agree!'

You must enter as a film category be it short or feature to be considered for winning a category main award. If you select as a film entry and blow us away you will be considered for categories you didnt enter.
