It is with delight that we announce that two Year 10 Media Arts students have been selected as two of 10 Finalists in the nation-wide Videos for Change film competition https://www.videosforchange.org/ supported by Channel 10 and The Project.
Congratulations to Anjali Reddy and Dublin Rose who are being recognised for their work on 'Don't Normalise What's Not Normal' and 'The Influence of Media'.
Videos for Change is a film competition aimed at empowering young people to become active, responsible and engaged citizens and agents of social change. The competition provides students with a platform to make a positive difference to society. Videos for Change is embedded in the Year 10 Media Arts curriculum as a real world, student-led, project-based learning experience in which students create one-minute videos to raise awareness of social issues about which they feel passionate.
Anjali has addressed the issue of domestic violence with her video: http://videosforchange.org/competition/2019/video/0bfb38b0-ee18-11e9-b2d4-0b77d471190b and Dublin has addressed the issue of the negative impacts of the media with her video: http://videosforchange.org/competition/2019/video/e4583cf0-ee16-11e9-b2d4-0b77d471190b
