Montana Meth Project seeks talented filmmakers 

MISSOULA – The Montana Meth Project is calling all treasure state filmmakers as the organization gathers submissions for a national 30-second commercial competition featuring a grand prize of $20,000 and nationwide air time for the declared winner.

All entries will be screened and approved by the Montana Meth Project and will be judged on cinematography, screenwriting, sound, acting, editing, originality, and the thematic integration of “Life or Meth.” Once submitted, each applicant will be competing nationally in an online contest.

Previous Meth Project commercials have influenced viewers through graphic, hard-hitting campaigns that followed young adults from first-time users to full-blown addicts as a means of educating people about the dangers of using meth, a highly addictive drug that severely alters a person’s brain activity.

 Create authentic, impactful messages that will influence the next generation of teens to keep their distance from the drug and reinforce Montana Meth Project’s message of “Not Even Once.”

Entries will be accepted Feb. 15 through May 31 at Contestants will also find a link to the submission platform on the Montana Meth Project Facebook page.
