LOS ANGELES (AP) - As many as six aspiring filmmakers will appear in next year’s Academy Awards ceremony, and Channing Tatum will help them get there.

Oscar producers said Wednesday they’re bringing back the Team Oscar program that invites young filmmakers to play a role in the awards show. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron say Tatum will once again serve as spokesman for Team Oscar and help choose its members.

The actor posted a video on YouTube inviting students to submit a 60-second video through the film academy’s Facebook page to audition. American citizens ages 18 to 30 are eligible, and submissions are due Jan. 12.

The winning artists will be flown to Los Angeles to participate in Oscar week activities and appear on the Oscar ceremony as trophy carriers.
