Back for another year, the Look Up Film Challenge, part of the AIA's "I Look Up" campaign, tasks architects and filmmakers to create a short piece about the impact of architecture. The inaugural contest included 26 film submissions, and the winners were announced at the Chicago Architecture Biennial last fall. (Read Timothy A. Schuler's interview with one of the makers of last year's People’s Choice award and third-place winner.)
The Grand Prize and People's Choice winning teams will each receive cash prizes of $2,500. Winning films, which will also include a runner up and a third place winner, will be screened at the Architecture & Design Film Festival in New York and Los Angeles and the SXSW Eco conference in Austin, Texas. Registrations for this year's contest are due by July 10, and submissions by August 14. Winners will be announced beginning in September.
