MP stands for Motion Picture Film Award, dedicated to independent films and filmmakers. With competitions every two months, We dedicate ourselves to awarding films based on their originality and creativity.

Our competition is divided into budget groupings split across various media forms: short films, feature films, web-series, and music videos. Within these four production categories, we separate the projects by their budgets: under $5,000, between $5,000-$10,000, and more than $10,000.

When submitting your project you automatically enter the ‘Competition Only' category. All films in this category are judged on an equal level regardless of length or budget constraints. For a complete and up-to-date list of our categories, please visit our website.

All selected participants within the main competition will be considered for the Jury Prizes. No films will be selected for our competition without a specific nomination.

For an extended Critique review of your film or web series, please enter Critique Review Only. The reviews average around 500 words each. We are currently unable to provide Critique Review for unproduced scripts.
