Channing Tatum Returns for 3rd Team Oscar Competition

Channing Tatum, along with Oscars producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, have announced the return of Team Oscar, a short-video competition seeking young filmmakers, with the winners to appear onstage at the 2015 Oscars.

Unlike previous years, in which only college students were eligible, this year’s competition is open to any U.S. citizen between 18 and 30 years old. Filmmakers can submit a 60-second video to the Academy’s Facebook page addressing the topic “The best piece of advice I’ve ever received.”

Up to six winners, to be announced in early 2015, will be flown to Los Angeles and deliver Oscar statuettes to celebrity presenters. Deadline is 9 p.m. PT on Jan. 12.

“I’m honored to be returning to launch the Team Oscar competition and encourage the next generation of filmmakers to join me onstage at this year’s Oscars,” said Tatum. “It’s inspiring to see how these young filmmakers rise to the challenge, and I can’t wait to see the talent we uncover.”

Zadan and Meron added, “We are thrilled to bring the Team Oscar competition back to the show for the third year, and that Channing Tatum will be our spokesperson and one of the judges. We are very happy that the idea we initiated has turned into an annual tradition, and is now open to a wider range of filmmakers who are passionate about film and the moviemaking process.”

The Oscars ceremony, to be hosted by Neal Patrick Harris and broadcast on ABC, is set for Feb. 22.
