The Producers Guild of America (PGA will hold the second annual Produced By Conference June 4-6 at the 20th Century Fox Studios in Los Angeles.  For one weekend, people will learn from and have access to the greatest producers in film, television and new media. This conference will feature extraordinary panel sessions, unique mentoring round tables, special workshops and exhibits, new tech demos and most of all incomparable networking opportunities.

As a special component to the Conference, the PGA is once again hosting the Producers Challenge Contest.  This annual contest was created to help promote the work of emerging storytellers and expose them to a wider industry audience.

Participants are invited to submit their work in four separate categories:

Narrative short films; documentary short films; independent webisode; studio and network-produced webisodes (a new category this year).

A jury composed of award-winning producers will select the finalists and winners.  And the prizes this year are better than ever!  Each winner will receive a MAKE YOUR NEXT Short Film Package totalling $30k in services for EACH WINNER, Just bring your DP and editor and Equilibrium Entertainment will provide consulting on pre-production, camera and audio gear, production van, a small crew, edit facilities, audio mixing, graphics and titling and MORE.

Other prizes will include a private mentoring lunch with a top producer like Gale Ann Hurd, Mark Gordon or Marshall Hershkovitz, full budgeting and scheduling software packages from Entertainment Partners and an all-session badge to the 2011 Produced By Conference.  The three finalists in each category will have the opportunity to screen at the Conference.
