SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Aspiring filmmakers in New Mexico could see their work take flight before the end of the year.

The New Mexico Film Foundation announced Saturday that it is holding a contest for the best short film about human space exploration.

The winning filmmaker will receive $5,000 to complete their film with Lockheed Martin, which is sponsoring the competition.

Foundation President Dirk Norris says the state has always been on the cutting edge of space exploration through its involvement in the development of the U.S. Space Program.

The contest is open only to New Mexico residents.

Submissions will be accepted between July 15 and Aug. 15.

The winning selection will be announced Aug. 29.

The chosen filmmaker will work with Lockheed Martin to complete the project by Nov. 15.
