The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) today announced the finalists for the annual 2014 Screen It competition, Australia’s largest competition for school-aged filmmakers, animators and game makers, now in its tenth year.

This year’s competition attracted 364 entries involving 1,518 students across Australia, creating live-action films, computer games and animations with the theme, ‘Reflection’.

ACMI Screen Education Manager, Christine Evely said: “We congratulate all the young people who entered Screen It this year. Entries were outstanding and we wish our finalists the best of luck in the lead up to the announcement of the 2014 winners.”

Winners will be acknowledged at a glittering red carpet awards ceremony at ACMI on Friday 5 December, each receiving a certificate, a trophy and a DVD prize pack courtesy of Madman Entertainment. Primary and Secondary Live Action and Animation category winners will also receive Crumpler products; whilst the Primary and Secondary Video Game category winner will receive a PS4 and a selection of games courtesy of Sony PlayStation. Along with great prizes for each category, the primary and secondary school with the Best Overall Entries will be recognised with a state-of-the-art NEC projector.

In addition, winning entries will be added to the Australian Mediatheque where ACMI visitors can view moving image works on demand. They will also be exhibited in ACMI’s Screen Worlds exhibition alongside some of the greatest filmmakers and game developers of all time, on ACMI’s Generator education portal and on the ACMI website.
