Cybersafe DigiFest Competition 2016 is all about Queensland state school students creating an original multimedia production and exploring the message of oversharing in the digital world.
Students can use their digital skills, such as video, animation or Claymation, to create a 2-3 minute production and win a red-carpet awards event in Brisbane, a trip to Movie World and other awesome prizes for their school.
Oversharing in the digital world can impact on the real world. Students can explore themes around online chatting, permission for gaming and social media accounts, providing personal information, photo sharing, bullying, protecting online reputations, and living life in the real world.
The competition is open to all students from Prep to Year 12. Students can work individually or as a team of up to five students.
Categories are based on:
- Prep - Year 2
- Years 3 - 6
- Years 7 - 8
- Years 9 - 12
