The My Story, My Content Short Film competition is on again. Presented by the Intellectual Property Awareness Foundation (IPAF) and Australian Teachers of Media (ATOM), My Story, My Content invites students to make a 60-second short film that celebrates Australian screen creativity, with great prizes up for grabs.

My Story
