The upcoming eighth edition of the contest brings one wholly new Women’s Stories subcategory, in which contestants will be interpreting briefs from non-governmental organizations working toward women’s rights, and another installment of the music video category. This year, contestants in the Music Stories category will be competing for an opportunity to produce music videos for artists from the Kayax roster.
In this year’s edition, young filmmakers will have the chance to work on music videos for Krzysztof Zalewski, Kayah, Julia Wieniawa, Barbara Wrońska, Bloo Crane, and the Karaś/Rogucki duo. This means choosing from variety of different music genres: from folk, through dance and pop to alternative sounds. Our contestants will be free to pick from the songs and styles presented in the Music Stories creative starters.
2021 marks the second year of Kayax’s involvement with the Papaya Young Directors initiative. Last year, contestants produced music videos for Natalia Przybysz
, Barbara Wrońska
, Smolik/Kev Fox, Kroki
, and Skubas
(the video shot by Michał Włodarczyk and Łukasz Ruciński went on to win the First Prize in the category).
