WA Police and CCCSF are offering you the chance to have YOUR story developed into a professional interactive film!

The lucky winner will have the chance to work with WA film pros from the WA Screen Academy and share in a prize pool worth more than $5000!

All you have to do is register and submit a short film (under two minutes in length) that explores an aspect of the negative affect of alcohol and drugs on youth mental health. Entries will be judged and shortlisted by a panel of communications industry professionals, with students also able to vote for their favourite finalist via Facebook.

The winning person or group receives:

  • A JB HiFi voucher worth $2400.

  • The chance to be an Executive Producer with the professionals at ECU WA Screen Academy to see their film made and launched online!

You can enter as an individual or as part of a group with up to three members. Registration closes 8 May, 2017.
