Black and white photography is as simple as it is complex, carefully weaving streaks of light into the black-unknown, giving rise to lines, shapes, textures, emotions and stories. TZIPAC is proud to celebrate this magic of black and white photography with the Zebra Awards. With great prizes up for grabs ($2000 Cash Prize, gift pack from Contepter, Medals and international exposure), we hope the Zebra Awards will bring to light the marvellously diverse and vibrant visions of black and white photography from many amazing artists worldwide.

For screening, should your film be accepted, we will require a DCP (to our specification, details will be sent to you) and an MP4 copy for backup and archive purposes.

 

DO NOT SEND PRESS PACKS, PHOTOS, TESTIMONIALS OR ANYTHING ELSE WITH YOUR SUBMISSION - it is a waste of paper and post. If we accept your film we will ask for the other things we need. Better still, make sure you upload a full press kit and trailer to your film's listing.

Features are often preceded by a short film selected by us. We believe strongly in a short & feature programme for our audience.

 

Films submitted to the festival will be promoted on our website, in printed materials (such as the festival programme) and in our press and marketing activity (this can include presenting films that we have selected to the press. You give us the right to use the name of the film, the images submitted for the uses listed. We will of course ask you if we want to screen your film in any tour or similar activity, as we often get asked to do guest spots at other festivals.

 

Once a film is submitted and accepted to the festival you guarantee to not withdraw it from the festival under any circumstances. You also guarantee to make sure we actually receive screening materials at least two weeks before the festival. If the screening and it will be a world premiere, please talk to us about a) making a big deal about it and b) keeping us in the production loop!

 

We put part of the festival online at our VOD service, www.watchscifi.com and we may wish to include your short film, advertised as "featured at the next festival". If we accept your movie please make it very clear to us if you DO NOT want your movie put on our festival webTV site. We may also look to include some of the feature films selected, let us know if we can screen yours and offer limited access to the feature film.

 

**Please note: We are careful to watch and evaluate every film that is submitted to our festival. Therefore, if you submitted the film you intend to submit in a previous year and were not accepted, please make sure that you have significantly changed your film (new sound mix, different ending, re-edited, shortened etc) before you submit again.
