$100 plus the opportunity to have the submission produced as an animated film.
Awards/Prizes: $50 for the runner-up.
Write a screenplay or story suitable for production as a digitally animated film of approximately five minutes in length. The winning entry will be considered for production by students of the Academy of Media Arts at Cerro Coso College and entry into animation festivals and contests; if produced, the author will receive production credit and several copies of the film. In the event of commercial interest, negotiations will include CCAMA and the author. The first place winner will be required to sign a disclaimer before the animation process begins warranting that the work is original and does not infringe on any other party's copyright.

Ridge Writers, the East Sierra Branch of the California Writers Club, reserves the right to cancel the contest and refund entry fees if fewer than 30 submissions are received.
