Attention filmmakers —


Poptent has a unique opportunity for filmmakers to create a film that raises awareness for the ASPCA’s No Pet Store Puppies campaign. The Creative Brief is a request for short 60-second films; and two of the selected films will be purchased for $7,500, with the opportunity for additional cash rewards.

And now, for a limited time, you can cast your Poptent film – or any other projects you’re working on – for FREE with Backstage. Simply visit, click the “Post a Notice” option, and enter the secret promo code BackstagePop during checkout.

The ASPCA has found that 78% of people don’t know that most pet stores get their puppies from puppy mills. The ASPCA is launching a campaign to raise awareness, and they need your help. Your assignment: Create a film to help the ASPCA educate others on the link between puppy mills and pet stores.

The ASPCA is looking for two videos – one that they can use year-round, and one geared toward the upcoming holiday season. Each should be 60 seconds in length. Films must be submitted by October 28th so check out the assignment now! Head over to, learn more about what the ASPCA and other top brands are looking for, and get started on your film.
