In years past, the short film contest, known as the Kerygma Awards, has had the support of some of Hollywood's big names like, Martin Sheen or Ralph Winter, producer of the X-Men series.

This year, the awards will showcase and honor the best short films that talk about peace.

The contest aims to promote good values among promising filmmakers. Participants have until March 17 to send in their submissions.

Contest details are available on the awards webpage. It's open to people between 17 and 25 years old. Though there can only be one winner, at least there's some good news for the other participants.
