#NewView is aimed at encouraging more young women to get into filmmaking.

"Because we are committed to supporting female filmmakers...'Glamour' and Girlgaze have joined forces to launch a film competition to provide young female filmmakers with the thing they most want: the chance to work," reads the website's statement.

Apparently only 11 of the 500 top-grossing films were directed by women; but with the help of a large, diverse group of ladies from various positions in the film industry, you can help to shift that balance. And all you have to do is submit a 3-5 minute short film that "showcases your point of view" for a chance to win $3,000; also, a potential directorial gig with 'Glamour'.

Lilly Singh joins a panel of over 25 women that will judge each entry.

The star-studded line-up of judges will decide if your submission is one of the top five to take home the prize; but as with everything, you've got to be in it to win it.#newview glamour girlgaze judges lilly singh
