The entertainment and media arts program at South Arkansas Community College is hosting the 15 Seconds of Horror video contest on Instagram throughout October.

Anyone, regardless of age, location, or professional status may enter the contest by uploading a 15-second original horror or horror-comedy video to Instagram and tagging the college’s Instagram account @southarkcc, using the hashtag #15SecondsofHorror.

Videos must be exactly 15 seconds long and posts must include both tags to be considered valid.

The video with the most “Likes” by noon on Halloween will be declared the winner, with second and third prizes also awarded. There is no fee to enter.

The first place winner will receive a prize package valued at more than $400. It includes a GoPro camera, Google Home Mini, Blue Snowball iCE microphone as well as other prizes.
