Film competition launched


The Southern Tasmanian Youth Transitions Taskforce has launched a film competition – ‘Lost in transition?’ — with substantial prizes.

The Theme

The film needs to be about transitions for young people moving, and think about moving from full time high school to further education, training and employment.
It will look at aspects of transition that might include: challenges, fears, hopes, opportunities, hurdles, decisions, stepping out, entering the unknown, moving to adulthood, and so on, from a student perspective.


There are two categories which are open to all young Tasmanians living in the south of the State [i.e. the 62 telephone region] who are currently undertaking studies in Grades 10, 11 or 12, in a Government, Private or Catholic school. The entry categories are linked to the level of study:-

  • Grade 10 students
  • Grades 11 & 12 students

The task

To produce a documentary of between 5 – 8 minutes that explains, highlights and explores the difficulties and challenges and opportunities that students face when moving from high school to further education, training and employment.
