This Summer, Project Ed is launching a new series of video contests that hopes to inspire young filmmakers to read classic novels and make them come to life in short videos. These seven, brand-new contests will challenge creators to reimagine books from genres like Adventure, SciFi, and Monsters and Mysteries. In addition to the opportunity to have your videos featured, Project Ed is giving away over $20,000 in cash prizes for great videos. Contests are open now and run through July.
