The My Story My Content Short Film Competition is an initiative of IP Awareness and Australian Teachers of Media (ATOM). It provides students with the opportunity to make a 60-second short film or animation celebrating Australian screen creativity, and win fantastic prizes in the process.
My Story My Content calls for aspiring filmmakers – primary and secondary students, and students at tertiary or equivalent institutions (such as TAFEs, private film schools, etc.) – to focus on the value of creativity and the need to respect the work of creators and filmmakers in Australia.
