Francophone students who are college seniors can compete.
Tournez S'il Vous Plaît (TSVP), in partnership with France 3's regional network, has launched the Graine de Doc competition to identify new documentary talent and offer them a springboard into filmmaking.
The competition aims to promote films that take a unique look at France, its society, regions and upheavals. This year's theme is "Facing the truth."
The winner will receive a paid contract with TSVP to produce their first documentary starting in September, which will be broadcast by a partner.
Contestants do not have to be nationals of a French-speaking country but must be able to present their project in French.
The deadline is May 14.
