Get Connected, a UK charity to provide help for young people, is launching Nobody's Perfect, a new website for young writers, actors and film directors.
Aspiring film-makers aged 16-25 can submit films, scripts or music to be shown to professionals in the industry. The site will have a contest to produce six short films to address issues including self-harm and bullying.
Judges for entries will include producer Nick O'Hagan (Fever Pitch, Tideland).
'I'm always on the lookout for new British talent and I'm confident this competition will unearth some exciting young writers and directors and I look forward to working with them on the project,' O'Hagan said.
Others on the panel include writer/director Paris Leonti and actors Jason Isaacs, Tom Hardy, Georgia Graoome and JJ Field.
The six short films to be made in London later this year will be premiered at the Odeon Covent Garden and will be backed by media partners including ITV Local, Tiscali and Raindance.
The site is launched today at www.nobodys-perfect.co.uk
