Awards categories

Under 18s Under 10 Minute Short Film
We saw outstanding young talent and a competitive field of entries. There will be names amongst these finalists we are sure to see in the future. The winning Under 18s Short Film for 2023 was DATE NIGHT, by Annabella Siddell.
Local History Under 7 Minute Dramatisation or Documentary pre-1990s
The aim was to tell histories of local icons and events, and have filmmakers document the captivating and entertaining tales of parents and grandparents to help preserve them and pass them on. Our winner was Animator Mick Horne with ROCKINGHAM: THE TRILOGY.
It's hard to compare creative story with documentary, but that's what we did with this category and it was highly competitive. In the end it was South Coast Baptist College who took out the title for the second year in a row with, MIRROR ME.
Under 13s Stop Motion
This entertaining category saw two young talents with projects that were impossible to put one ahead of the other. This was reflected in the outcome with our first-ever 'draw'. Our winners were THE BLOB by Michael Fielding, and MOTORVATION by Samar Sandhu.

The winner of this category showed Senior Aboriginal students from Sheoak Grove Primary School produce a version of Australia's National Anthem which acknowledges and respects First Nations People.
