The following was in my inbox the very next morning after posting my short film A Flight of Monarchs:
I watched your Short Film “A Flight of Monarchs” & I loved it!
I think you should upload it and some of your other Short films on Tallenge. We have an ongoing Short Film contest with $500 prize. You can sign up & upload for free.
The Winner of this contest qualifies for the annual contest which has a cash prize of $10,000.

I would love to see you compete on Tallenge. Let me know if you need any more info and I’ll be glad to help.
Love & Regards
With their super slick website touting themselves as Earth’s Largest Talent Platform, I immediately began to dream of winning $10,000. to put towards completing several current film projects. Enter the contest and you only have to:
“…irrevocably grant Tallenge, its successors, subsidiaries, parent and related companies, licensees, assignees, and third parties acting on Tallenge’s behalf, an exclusive worldwide, royalty-free right to license to use, exhibit, license, sub-license, distribute, perform, post, display, copy, publish, promote, re-format, reproduce, prepare derivative works of, adapt, make available online or electronically transmit and exploit the Submission, for free, […] for a period of five (5) years from the date you entered the contest. After the term of the foregoing license expires, the license shall automatically convert into a non-exclusive license to Tallenge in perpetuity.”
