If you fancy yourself as a film critic, then here's your chance. It's a fantastic opportunity to review films during this year?s Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF). You'll also be invited onto BBC Radio Scotland's Movie Café and see your writing in print in The Scotsman. The lucky winner will receive a 'money-can't-buy' Delegate's Pass to the EIFF, allowing access to see as many press screenings as he or she likes from 15-26 August, subject to ticket availability.

How to enter: All you have to do is write a review of a film you love, or hate, in less than 250 words. Please also write a short paragraph telling us why you'd like to win this great prize. If you impress the judges - the director of the Edinburgh International Film Festival Hannah McGill, The Scotsman's arts editor Andrew Eaton and BBC Radio Scotland's Movie Café's Janice Forsyth, you'll have freedom to roam this year's festival and you'll appear on the Movie Café and in the pages of the Scotsman. Click here for full details on how to enter, as well as terms and conditions.

More details, including Hannah and Andrew's tips on how to write a film review, will be published in Scotsman Review, and on subsequent Fridays until the closing date, 27 July.
