Inspired to make your own film? Sprint is sponsoring the See What I'm Saying S
hort Film Contest with some amazing prizes to promote captioned films. Produce a short film 3 minutes or less that includes the phrase, "see what I'm saying" used in a creative way, caption your film with English subtitles and upload your video. The films with the most votes by January 5, 2011 win a trip to Hollywood to screen their film at the DVD release party along with other great prizes
sponsored by Sprint Relay.

The contest is free to enter, and is open to everyone. The goal is to encourage deaf filmmakers to share their work with mainstream audiences, and to encourage hearing filmmakers to caption their films. The first and second place winners are determined by most votes on the internet by January 5, 2011, and the third "See What I'm Saying" prize is selected by a panel of judges. Please go to our website
to read all of the rules, upload your video and vote on your favorite films.

Now get out there with your cameras and have some fun!
