Got some spare time? Possess a talent for writing? Then why not consider entering The Junior Galway Film Fleadh Storytelling Competition in association with Galway Film Centre and (a leading national youth organisation). This is the eighth annual Story Pitching Competition and is open to young people between the ages of 10 – 18 years old at primary or secondary school.

If you are interested in competing, you are invited to write a short (500 words) idea for a story. Your idea can be for a feature film, short film, TV series, documentary, web series, video game, animation or even a combined media project.

Begin by drafting your idea then practice it in front of family and friends. Become comfortable relaying the story outline. Because, should your idea be one of the 3 shortlisted, you will be invited to present it in the Town Hall Theatre to an assembled audience and jury during the festival on Friday 13th November 2015. Stories and scripts featuring spooky themes are especially welcome but really just use your imagination. We’d love to hear your ideas!

The Prize

  • A place on either a drama or animation summer camp at Galway Film Centre
  • 1 year’s membership to the Centre and subscription to their newsletter

Closing date – Friday November 6th 2015
