Call For Filmmakers: Louis Vuitton’s 2nd Journey Awards

What Will You Encounter?Travel has been at the heart of Louis Vuitton since its inception and the most memorable part of a journey is what you encounter. The subject of encounters is open to interpretation. It is not only about meeting another person; it can be an encounter with a place, an object, a culture, or even oneself. No matter what, when you are open to these experiences, an encounter can have a profound and lasting effect.Louis Vuitton is calling on emerging filmmakers to show what a meaningful encounter means to them. How it is experienced. Where it is experienced. How it is felt in the soul. What we live in that moment. And we carry away from it.
The competition is designed to offer participants a chance to showcase their creativity, demonstrate their technical skills and resonate with an audience. It also offers two $25,000 prizes and international media exposure opportunities.The Journey Begins• Beginning March 15th participants should visit to register for the competition.
