The LFMP 'Video meets Baby Boomers' is looking for some talented filmmakers to document how people 50+ interact with technology. So grab your video camera and make a short documentary featuring yourself, family members, teachers or other acquaintances. Is there a generation gap going on with technology? What is the difference between how boomers use technology versus how teens and twenty-somethings use it? Your film could be funny or scientific, but if it's entertaining and insightful with a unique POV you could walk away with $10,000.

your video at an upcoming advertising/marketing summit packed with advertising innovators, media executives and decision makers from some of the most influential global brands. Think of the doors this could open for you as a filmmaker.

(Oh, we also thought some cash for tuition, film equipment, or whatever might help too.)

Grand Prize.$10,000 USD including: the screening of your film at the WPP Digital Media Summit, a content feature within the LFMP documentary and Paid Travel & Accommodations to NYC (See rules for winners below 18 yrs of age at time of entry)
