Trop Jr 2017 entries open October 2016 and close December 15, 2016.  All entries must contain the Trop Jr Signature Item: 'MASK'. 


Not sure what the TSI is? Here's what you need to know.


Basically, the TSI is there to give your creativity a kickstart - it is a great place to start brainstorming story ideas.

You can include "MASK" in your film in any way you like and any interpretation of “MASK” is accepted. You can create a whole story idea around the TSI, or you can choose to have in the script or even in the background of a shot somewhere. Be creative!
