TMZ on TV is accepting submissions from filmmakers with fresh, original takes on the entertainment industry to promote the humor and attitude of the show with creative 12- or 27-second commercials. Impress TMZ with your enthusiasm for pop culture and your ability to effectively communicate a message through your art. “We love Hollywood. We just have a funny way of showing it,” and we hope you do too! $15,000 total will be rewarded to the creators of the best video ads, and their work may be broadcast on national television.

The competition, creative brief, and detailed submission requirements are hosted on Zooppa, a community of independent creative professionals from the filmmaking, design, and art industries, at http://zooppa.com/contests/tmz-on-tv . The contest ends August 9, 2010.
