Given the growing megapixel count and video capabilities of
smartphones, it was only a matter of time before we saw a filmmaking
competition around the device. Now Cinequest and SanDisk have teamed up to create
one.Cinequest  

20 filmmakers from Cinequest’s 20th anniversary
film festival are competing in the inaugural event, vying for $5,000.

The general public will act as judge and jury – voting on
whichever entry they think should win. Two people will get T-Moibile Mytouch 3G
smart phones, while 24 runners up will get an 8GB SanDisk mobile memory card.

The films were made using a video-capable mobile phone
around the theme “Discover”.  (Entrants
can be found at http://www.youtube.com/sandisk.)
Voting lasts until Feb. 16.
