To encourage our members to make films or take part in the making of club films Mid-Cheshire Movie Makers hold competitions throughout the year. This year, 2016 - 2017, we introduced more categories, in other words, you have more chance of winning. Best Editing, best sound, best lighting and a new 'John' trophy (subject to be agreed upon). The remaining Niklaus Trophy, The Progress Trophy and The Fowler Trophy are still current and awarded to members who we feel best fit their criteria.

The Niklaus Trophy (any subject, maximum length one minute)

The "One Minute Video" competition is a regular event where the subject matter and treatment is not defined. The objective is to produce something of interest in the space of one minute! Not as easy as it seems.

Each video should not exceed one minute including titles, credits and music. Multiple entries are encouraged.
Entries should be shown at the earliest opportunity for discussion. The videos will be judged in March by one or more experienced video makers from another club. The judges will provide comments and award points for each entry.

The Progress Trophy (For ourstanding contribution to the Club)

The “Progress” trophy is awarded to the member who, in the opinion of the Chairman, has either greatest progress in their knowledge and understanding of film making and its production tools or has made the greatest contribution to the club during that year.

The  Fowler Trophy (any subject)

Throughout the year members are given the opportunity to show any films they have made. During 'Judgement Day' at the end of the year, members vote for what they consider to be the 'Best film of the year'. For this the winner is awarded the coveted 'Fowler trophy'.
