‘Love Food Hate Waste’ Short Film Competition
Love Food Hate Waste is the NSW Environment Protection Authority's (EPA) campaign to raise awareness about the issue of food waste.
In NSW alone, more than 800,000 tonnes (about $2.5 billion worth) of edible food is wasted every year.
The EPA has funded the Love Food Hate Waste short film competition, launched by the University of Technology, Sydney, and the City of Sydney to help raise awareness of this growing problem.
Prizes will be awarded by judges across two categories - for a 30-second film and a 3-5 minute film, as well as a People's Choice award.
The seven top finalists will be screened at the Australian Film Festival in March 2013.
Films can be in different formats: documentary, interview and animation. Entrants must be over 18 and entries close December 16. Voting for the People's Choice award will open in January and February 2013.
The Love Food Hate Waste short film competition is supported by universities around NSW, including the University of Newcastle's Tom Farrell Institute for the Environment.
