A FILMMAKING project has issued its final call for aspiring Capital musicians to enter a competition.

Screen Edinburgh wants DJs, bands and solo artists aged between 12 and 19 to 
submit their best tracks to a vote on its Facebook site.

The organisation has just begun running workshops for budding filmmakers in Edinburgh and is looking for the right artists to collaborate on its first project.

Graham Fitzpatrick, Screen Education Edinburgh’s creative manager, said the two entries with the most votes would be awarded their own music video.

“It’s a good way to start filmmaking because it’s short, sharp, has no dialogue, but still tells a story,” he said.

Submissions are accepted by posting a link to your song on the Screen Education Edinburgh Facebook site before noon on Monday. Only original songs are eligible.

Votes can be made for a week from Monday.
