What’s Your #NYFASummer Story?



Welcome to another year of summer at the New York Film Academy! We are excited to announce this year’s #NYFASummer Selfie Content, giving you the opportunity to win some awesome NYFA swag as well as receiving the opportunity to have your photo animated by NYFA Alumna, Eliska Podzimkova, whose work has made her Instafamous with over 56k followers.

For the past few summers NYFA has held a photo contest on social media (Instagram, Facebook and Twitter) for our summer camp students to show off their locations, sets and overall campus life at each of their specific locations. Due to the great success and engagement over the last couple years, we are doing this again, but this time we want you to create a selfie! In addition, we will be giving out swag packs every month, with the grand winner receiving our major NYFA swag package (as well as their photo animated by Eliska).
