The Weinstein Company announced an online contest today, where aspiring filmmakers can submit an original short inspired by Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained.

Take a look at the filmmaker's video message to all prospective contestants, and read on for full details regarding this contest.
The Weinstein Company and Red Bull North America are excited to announce an online contest for emerging filmmakers with Quentin Tarantino at the helm. Quentin has charged filmmakers with the challenge to "find your own voice," and has exclusively harnessed the power of Red Bull Media House to help get the word out.
Starting June 15th, contestants will have the opportunity to inspire Quentin Tarantino with their own original content. Contestants will have two weeks to create and submit an original multi-media piece that will be viewed and judged by Quentin and his team. The piece must be a maximum of three minutes in length and incorporate footage from either the official Django Unchained Trailer, or from one of three of Quentin Tarantino's favorite spaghetti westerns that inspired the creation of Django Unchained. Included in these are: Django, Sergio Corbucci (1966), The Grand Duel, Giancarlo Santi (1972) and Day of Anger, Tonino Valerii (1967). In addition, contestants must include a musical track from one of Red Bull Records featured bands including: platinum recording artist AWOLNation, the UK's breakout artist of the year Twin Atlantic and dance chart artists Innerpartysytem as a part of the pieces soundtrack.
Starting today contestants can log-on to RedBullUSA.com/Django for more detailed contest information and to register as an official contestant. Beginning on June 15th all contestants and fans from around the world will be able to view exclusive Quentin Tarantino content as well as see the esteemed director speak to the inspiration behind Django Unchained, his love of spaghetti westerns and the magic of cinema as well as give advice to emerging artists.
The one lucky winner and guest will get the chance of a lifetime to meet Quentin Tarantino at Comic Con in San Diego, CA after filming is complete for Django Unchained. The runner up will receive authentic Django Unchained memorabilia and other prizes and a Red Bull Fan Pick prize will also be awarded.
