An Australian company called Live & Love are looking for entries into their short film competition. The aim of the competition is to destigmatise the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) and raise awareness of the issue. All you have to do is create a short video, no longer than 30 seconds, sending a message that destigmatises the HSV, and you could win $10,000 for the judges choice.
Head to www.liveandlove.com.au for all details.
It's such a great cause, and it would be great if we could get to a point where people are comfortable to talk about herpes in the open. Considering so many people have it, it's amazing that there's still such a stigma surrounding it. Also, there's $10,000 in it for someone, and you can't complain about that!
If you have any filmmaker friends, or even just some simple editing software on your computer, I encourage you to enter!
