Do you fancy yourself the next Bril?  The next Dugan? The next Coraci?

Well if you do, be sure to sign up for the MAGS Short Film competition. Sign ups end later this week, so get in quick - you can sign up on the door of E17.

The competition will be held over 4 weeks in Term 3, starting Monday the 30th of July, and finishing on Monday the 20th of August. You need to submit your film on a named USB by 4pm, so they can be downloaded (these will be returned).

This is such a great opportunity to help you unleash your creativity and have fun with friends, so sign up now, and good luck!
