The agency is building out its capability in the video sphere, with film expected to account for 50% of web traffic by 2015, and are offering the six month paid placement plus $3,000 cash to the winner.

Creative director Matt Sterne (pictured) said: “In a marketing sense, video and film is hugely important and can make the difference between a successful campaign and a flop. A good video or film can transform your emotions in an instant.

“We want to help grow the next wave of film creatives and give them a solid foot in the door. There’s no substitute for experience which is why we’re offering a paid internship as the first prize. Being able to learn from some of the leading minds in the content marketing space is a great opportunity for any young creative.”

The competition is open to people aged 19-25, who must submit a short film on the theme of ‘Play’ by October 29. More details can be found at www.thenewwave.com.au. Judges include Tropfest finalist and advertising creative, Kevin Lim; production and development expert who has recently developed and produced a comedy and drama for Foxtel Emma Moroney and film reviewer and voice of the movies on Sydney FBi radio, Sam Clark.
