Yes, any works that are co-directed can be entered in the SHOOT New Directors Search. Many duos and teams have been selected over the years. Just keep in mind that all co-directors must be directing professionally less than 3 years. If one qualifies and the other doesn’t, they cannot enter.

I have never directed any type of advertising or entertainment professionally but I have been self funding and making my shorts since 2010. Does this disqualify me to enter ‘The New Directors Search’?
You’re not disqualified unless you you received payment(s) from any professional company/organization for any work you directed prior to 3 years back and/or received payments for showing any work you directed prior to 3 years back.
