Calling All Submissions – Limelight Awards Now Open for 5th Round

Limelight Film and Arts Awards is the annual short film competition, followed by a red carpet awards ceremony, attended by over 500 film makers, celebrities and TV/Film personalities. In its fifth year, with 12 film categories and a £10,000 production award, Limelight is paving the way in identifying emerging British film makers while helping to strengthen the industry.
