The Winning film receives a cash prize of $10,000 as well as a return trip to Los Angeles to take part in a 5 day film immersion course. This course is designed to introduce independent filmmakers to the film and TV business in Hollywood and the winner will get to meet with agents, managers, studio executives, unions, TV production companies, film industry lawyers and others - and attend the American Film Market.

The course attracts filmmakers from all over the world, from South America and across the Asia-Pacific region. Many Tropfest winners have experienced the film course and used the time in Los Angeles to develop their network and their projects with great success.

The MPA and Tropfest hope that this is both a practical and inspirational prize that provides value to independent filmmakers
