Oscar winning director Peter Jackson has joined forces with Tourism New Zealand in a bid to attract more visitors to the country.
The finalists will get the chance to work with The Lord of the Rings producer Barrie Osborne and Wellington’s Park Road Post Production facility.
The winning film will be selected by Peter Jackson, who will personally view the final five entries.
Outgoing chief executive of Tourism New Zealand, George Hickton said: "’Your Big Break’ is asking people to capture the essence of 100% Pure New Zealand and tell the world their story of how they see the youngest country on earth.
"The importance of having two film industry legends involved with Your Big Break is immense.
“Their support will help ensure the project is noticed by the world’s film industry, give it international reach and, we hope, result in some great stories."
