Great Australian Story Challenge

I should have mentioned this a lot earlier.

The ABC starts, in it's own way, soliciting user generated content. I would have liked something a little less formal, but all in all it's a great opportunity for Australian film and TV students to get a foot in the door, especially given how difficult it is to get a job in this industry.

"To celebrate 10 years on air, we're inviting university students from across Australia to produce a five-minute video in the style of ABC TV's Australian Story.

The winner of The Great Australian Story Challenge will receive a three-month internship with the Australian Story team, and finalists' entries will be compiled into a special program to go to air in May 2006, when Australian Story will officially turn 10. This special program will also air on ABC2 and program material will be available on ABC Broadband."
