As if the #TaylorSwiftExposedParty snaps weren't enough to convince you of the artistic validity of Snapchat as a storytelling medium, the Tribeca Film Festival has announced they are now accepting submissions for a 2017 Snapchat Shorts contest. The competition was launched earlier this year "to discover visionary artists in the mobile space." Ten finalists will be given passes to attend the festival, and a celebrity panel (including Serena Wiliams, Andy Cohen and Eva Longoria) will select a winner.
To get your snaps the establishment credibility they richly deserve, just upload your 120-second Snapsterpiece here before February 17, 2017. Keep it vertical, keep it PG, and may the odds ever be in your favor.
The bar has been set.
