This is pretty awesome. The submission fees ($15) go to the American Cancer Society, right?

This is a great idea! I can't wait to check out all the submissions. From what I've been seeing in the way of GB fan films, the competition should be pretty stiff...lots of great stuff out there!

That's correct, Kevin, every cent of the submission fees go to the American Cancer Society.

Also, multiple submissions from the same source are allowed, but an additional donation or application fee for each episode or separate video will be requested.

We might be a part of this bitch if that's the case. I'll see what we can do in terms of getting our stuff done in time.

What's your release date looking like? Just curious.

We're open to showing trailers that aren't competing on the site as a form of free advertisement if you're interested. The "Ghostheads" trailer should be one of the first "Exhibition" trailers you'll see on the site.

Alrighty, we're ready enough to start taking submissions for fan films in our GB Fan Film Contest.

Here's the presser we've been spamming all day....

------

"The Golden Ghost Awards, the first Ghostbusters Fan Film Contest, has officially begun today with a 2-week application period for filmmakers to submit their work for competition."

The Golden Ghost Awards website is now open for business!

Want to compete in the first ever Ghostbusters Fan Film Contest?

Applicants will find links on the site below to review rules and guidelines, as well as instructions on how to apply to compete and a synopsis of how the voting will take place.

Here's a brief timeline on the contest:

May 16-30th: Applications considered for competition.
May 30-June 13: Voting Period. Fans may vote once per day, per computer for 14 days and may vote for any combination of films they chose.
June 15: Winner is announced and contacted.
June 30: Acceptance speech is requested to have been sent back to us to post on the site from Winner and Runner-Up.

So if you're ready, click over to the official site:
http://GOLDENGHOSTAWARDS.COM

Again, 2 weeks for submissions, when we'll be closing off applications and going into view and vote mode.

And may the best film win!

Descriptions and mock-ups of the awards being given out are also on the site if you'd like a closer look of what's up for grabs besides saying your film was voted best overall.


Not able to compete or not ready? We will be exhibiting trailers for non-qualifying or work-in-progress Fan Films on our home page! Just email Ben_L@louisianaghostbusters.net or find him on Facebook to inquire.

------

Website managers,

We've also got images of the contest logo you can use. Just shoot me a PM or an email and we'll get something you can use if you'd like to help promote the contest and the flms competing.

Thanks for your interest in our contest!

So, someone hacked the website we had up as we were taking submission for the contest. We're sliding the schedule back about 5 days while we rebuilt and refortify the site. Some of you were hoping for a little more time to get your films ready. Looks like you got it! Thanks, hackers who take down sites raising money to fight cancer! You really are a credit to hackerdom..... *cough*

My question is: How exactly did you obtain said pictures?

Let us know when the site is back up and SLC's submission will be entered.

Really glad to hear from both you guys! The site's nearing re-useable status. We'll have an annoucement here and all over Facebook when the time comes. Shooting for Thursday, which would put everything on a 5 day slide. Not too shabby.

It has begun...

I'm actually surprised that there are films in the running that I didn't even know existed yet!

I was too! But yes, voting has begun. On with the show!

Folks, you can vote one any device once per day from that device. This will go on for two weeks.

We hope to annouce the 5 winners on June 20th!

Go go and vote on the View and Vote Hub page at Goldenghostawards.com!

Voting's going well. We're considering a halfway point standings post to continue to encourage votes. I'll post this "exclusive" teaser here and nowhere else.... a couple of placings are tied or neck and neck. If the supporters of either of those films flinches for even one day, it'll cost em a placing.

Stay vigilant and vote!

We’re Back! Completely overhauled and ready for a summer of excitement, the Louisiana Ghostbusters Golden Ghost Awards fan film contest has returned!

Every wonder what a real Ghostbuster would think of your fan film?

Think your acting chops or effects shine above the competition?

Fancy a fun way to benefit breast cancer research?

This summer’s Ghosties will feature many of the great aspects of last year’s competition like a custom trophy and widespread exposure for your project as the only *Ghostbusters* fan film contest with some MAJOR differences:

-Instead of a popular vote your film will be viewed an critiqued by *cast and crew of the actual **Ghostbusters** films and cartoons!*

-Hand-picked superfans from around the world, most with television and film backgrounds, will also get to select their favorites!

-Categories will be judged like:

Best Ensemble Cast
Best Visual Effects
Best Original Script
Best performance by an actor or actress
Best Overall Fan Film

-More awards will be given out this year so that you have not two (last year) but six opportunities to win Golden Ghost swag and claim the bragging rights that your fan film stood out in its category!

For details, click over to Goldenghostawards.com and get ready to submit your film for competition starting July 1st!

Submission fees in the form of donations to the American Cancer Society will be requested for each category your film is submitted in. Multiple films may be submitted per applicant. Entrants from last year are encouraged to return as the contest has completely changed.
