Are you a filmmaker that happens to be a fan of Firefox? Do you want a chance to win a few thousand dollars? If so, you'll definitely want to submit a film for the Firefox Flicks competition this year.

Mozilla announced that this year's Firefox Flicks competition will be open for entries on February 13. The competition challenges filmmakers to create a 60 second or less video "that help tell the Firefox story." This year's theme is "Get Mobilized." Here's how Mozilla describes it:

It's about enabling more people to take advantage of the full power of the Web and giving them better access to easily discover, enjoy and share content that can change their lives. Through Firefox Flicks we are creating energy for our upcoming mobile OS that will deliver on this promise.

Those who decide to make a film have a shot at winning prizes in three categories:

  • Early Entry Awards - There will be multiple chances to win $1,000 for submitting a flick early. The top three early entry submission Flicks will be included in the final round.
  • Regional Winners - One winner from each contest region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia) will win a $5,000 cash prize and one runner up from each contest region will win a $2,500 cash prize.
  • People’s Choice Award - People will be able to vote for their favorite Flick during the People’s Choice Award voting period August 1 – August 31. The three winning Flicks will receive a Firefox Flicks swag bag.
