Grand Prize

TCM Backlot members can win a trip to the TCM Studios in Atlanta to co-host a film on air with Ben Mankiewicz.



We'd like to congratulate the winner of TCM Backlot's inaugural Guest Programmer Contest, Humberto Martinez.

How To Enter

All you have to do is create your own 90-second introduction to a classic film. It could be one you’ve never seen on TCM before, or a beloved classic you present in a new way—it’s your choice. All we ask is that you be creative, informative and have some fun as you take on the role of a TCM host.
