  • Be female, age 18 - 26

The file must be 100MB or under in size and must be in .mp4 format. If you are having trouble compressing your file to a reasonable size, take a look at mpeg streamclip, which is very lightweight and makes compressing easy!

  3. Sign the release below allowing us to circulate your film for Horizon purposes. Keep in mind this release does not grant ownership, only use of the submission.
