If you’re aged between 13 and 19 and feeling the creativity bug bite, then enter InsideOUT’s multimedia art competition. There are three categories for you to unleash your ideas on: film, writing and art. You can even enter all categories, and multiple times (though InsideOUT would prefer if you entered a maximum of three times for each category).
Anyone is allowed to enter, but the pieces submitted should reflect LGBT+ themes, and they must have been made within the last two years.
InsideOUT says they are doing this as they “[recognise] that students are already writing and making films and art with rainbow themes that contain positive representations, challenge norms and confront LGBTQIA+ [sic] issues. This competition is intended to bring more visibility to these multi-media arts, reward the young people who are creating this content, and heighten the awareness of our organisation and the work that we do”.
Did we mention that there’s also a $500 dollar prize for the winning entry in each category? Oh, and there may be prizes for the runners-up too.
Entries are due by 31 October 2016, so get filming, typing and dooodling.
