STOP THE PRESS!!!
Australian Teachers of Media Queensland have partnered with the Asia Pacific Screen Academy (APSA) – who honour the greatest achievements across 78 countries and areas that make up the Asia Pacific region. This year, APSA is presenting the Asia Pacific Young Audience Award program.
The program is calling for Media Arts & FTVNM students aged 14 – 16 (Year 9-11) to apply to be a member of the Asia Pacific Young Audience Award Jury to decide the winner of the 2022 Asia Pacific Young Audience Award. Three films will be presented in a non-commercial closed jury screening on Saturday 10 September, 8.30am – 6pm at Griffith Film School, South Brisbane and in Gympie (venue TBC).
Details on the film selection, winner announcement and other opportunities to engage with fellow jurors and the filmmakers via Q&As will be provided late August.
HOW TO APPLY
The application form involves viewing a clip from APSA Best Youth nominated film BROTHER’S KEEPER (Turkey, 2021) and then completing a short answer response to a question. This uses previously unseen stimulus to check for understanding of key concepts. ATOMQld will use these responses to select jury members. Selected students and their teachers will be informed via email in early September and provided with an information pack on the nominated films.
All applicants must also provide a signed consent form from their parent or legal guardian in order to participate.
Entries close at midnight, Thursday 25 August.
