My Queer Career

Calling all Australian Filmmakers! If you are queer or have made a queer film, My Queer Career is one of the world’s most prestigious awards available for queer short filmmakers. It is only open to locally produced work. The major prize includes $3,000 cash, other prizes to the value of over $10,000 including in-kind production facilities and support. The winning film gains automatic entry to the Iris Prize, the world’s largest prize for a gay and lesbian short film, held in Cardiff, Wales.
