Electronic Arts and the University of Southern California School of Cinema-Television have announced the Sims 2 Student Life Movie Contest. The competition offers prizes for the best movie made with the simulation game's built-in video creation tools. The grand prize winner will receive either $5,000 or a four-week internship with Maxis Studios at EA's headquarters in Redwood City, Calif.
The staff of the USC School of Cinema-Television have put together some guidelines for competitors. Films must be less than three minutes in length and feature content appropriate for a teen audience or younger. Submissions will be accepted until May 30.
