Welcome to the 15 Second Horror Film Challenge! Here is WHAT TO EXPECT:

You’ll receive notification within a timely fashion whether your film was accepted or not. Upon request, official selection laurels are available.

Stay tuned to our Facebook for all up-to-date coverage. In late October, the opening kick-off montage premieres!

On Halloween, all of the current season’s entries premiere!
From November into December, we have two separate judge panels processing their votes: (1) a community award panel determines various categories such as Top Scariest Monsters, Gore FX, Twists etc TBA as our (2) official judge panel processes their TOP 10 VOTES towards the top rankings.

Before Christmas, the season finale determines a date as the judges’ window closes mid-December at the very latest. In the mean-time, awards and Top 10s release throughout the weekdays until the season finale reveals the top rankings!
