Last year, Ron Howard and Canon USA invited people to submit photographs that would influence the script, theme and feel of a Ron Howard production. They received 100,000 photos and selected eight. Ron's daughter, actress Bryce Dallas Howard, directed the short "When You Find Me."
This year, the contest, called Project Imaginat10n, was expanded and there are now 10 categories and 10 winners.
Milwaukee photographer Matthew George's photo called "A Journey Home" was picked as a finalist. Voting is open until Oct. 1.
The first five shorts will be directed by Eva Longoria from "Desperate Housewives"; actor, singer and comedian Jamie Foxx; Biz Stone, the co-founder of Twitter; Georgina Chapman, fashion designer and actress; and James Murphy, singer and founder of LCD Soundsystem.
"I am honored to be a finalist in the contest," says George. "I really do feel that photography is a journey of self discovery, and it's ability to teach us about life is limitless."
