Louis Vuitton Journeys Awards Competition 2012

Louis Vuitton and Luca Guadagnino are inviting you to take part in the second edition of Journeys Awards filmmaking competition. This time, participants are invited to show what a meaningful encounter means to them. The subject of encounters is open to interpretation.

Submitted films should be short and silent, with no spoken dialog nor caption.

Journeys Awards competition is designed to offer participants a chance to showcase their creativity, demonstrate their technical skills and resonate with an audience. It also offers two $25,000 prizes!

Show What Meaningful Encounter Means to You

In this edition, headed by Luca Guadagnino, the organizers are calling on emerging filmmakers to show what a meaningful encounter means to them. How it is experienced. Where it is experienced. How it is felt in the soul. What we live in that moment. And we carry away from it.

Travel has been at the heart of Louis Vuitton since its inception and the most memorable part of a journey is what you encounter. The subject of encounters is open to interpretation. It is not only about meeting another person; it can be an encounter with a place, an object, a culture, or even oneself. No matter what, when you are open to these experiences, an encounter can have a profound and lasting effect.

Films must be between 3:00 and 5:00 minutes running time and should be silent (no spoken dialog nor caption).

All footage must be shot by you. No stock footage will be allowed.

The public will be invited to vote for their favorite film on Journeys Awards website.

Journeys Awards competition offers two $25,000 prizes: Jury’s Awards and Online People Choice Award as well as a unique opportunity to gain an international media exposure at the Venice Film Festival.
