$40,000 Short Film Competition – Everyday Humans

Everyday Humans Short Film Competition: WIN $40,000 in Cash & Prizes!

Via Syrp:

We all know them. The creators, the givers, the good folk. The Everyday Humans that make the world tick over as it should.

We're excited to announce that we've jumped on board with a new film project called Everyday Humans! A short film series aiming to inspire creative film-making and storytelling.


To kick it all off we're sponsoring, in conjunction with Zooppa, the very first Everyday Humans Short Film Competition! There's $40,000 in cash and prizes including gear from Goal Zero, Wipster, MindShift Gear, ThinkTank and of course, Syrp to be won.

We want you to get creative and make a 3-4 minute short film that tells the story of the human of your choice. Capture their chat, antics and what makes them tick. The competition ends on the 31st of October and there's heaps of awards catagories and chances to win!

For more information and the full filmmakers brief, head over to the Everyday Humans website. Scroll down to check out the competition trailer and our own Everyday Humans episode.

Remember to follow the Everyday Humans social accounts too! We'll be posting updates, inspiration and maybe even a giveaway or two.

Everyday Humans – Joe Salmen

Our first Everyday Humans episode introduces you to Joe Salmen.

Passionate about the conservation of native bush and a solid cooked brekky, Joe’s a good sort with a love of heights. Most days you’ll find him hanging out in the tops of some of Auckland’s tallest trees or in his workshop making plans about plans and sharpening chainsaws for his next skyward adventure.

Make your very own Everyday Humans episode and enter their short film competition. Visit for more information.
