* Closing date for entries Friday 1st June 2012 (lots of time for any capable filmmaker).

* Selected entries are guaranteed nationwide screening on both free-to-air and cable television!

* There is no restriction on themes: Space travel, giant monsters, mad scientists, alien invaders, vintage science fiction, etc. are all gladly accepted!

* Free entry for convention members. You need not be a member of Con 9 From Outer Space to enter your film but, if not a member, then an entry fee of $15.00 will apply.

* Films should be no more than 12 minutes in duration and only films produced in 2011 or 2012 will be eligible for prizes.

* Film must look like it was made in the correct era (pre-1965) and should follow the US Hays Code of censorship (a contemporary film simply converted to black & white would not be accepted).

* All entries must be an original creation and must avoid using existing material from a film or television show. For instance, the use of stock music would be acceptable, while a simple video clip compilation would not be accepted.

* First, second and third place winners will be presented with an exclusive ‘Golden Gort’ trophy created specifically for Con 9 From Outer Space. Other prizes are yet to be decided.

* The convention organisers reserve the right to refuse any entry if they feel the film does not meet required guidelines.
