Shoot a short and win with the dawn of the ‘AnthropoScene’

THE International Commission on Stratigraphy is expected to formally announce the dawn of the Anthropocene Epoch: a new geological period defined by the fact that the Earth's systems are now fundamentally determined by human activity.

The philosophical and practical consequences couldn't be greater: in short, nature is no longer that ever-providing thing 'out there', it is, for better or worse, something we are creating.

The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects and the National Museum of Australia have invited artists to submit of 3 to 4-minute short films on the general subject of the new epoch of the Anthropocene.

Six finalists to the competition, called AntropoScene, will be pre-selected by the judges for public screening at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra on the evening of October 27, 2016.

The ultimate winner will be determined via audience participation at the screening.

The prize money is $10,000. Get shooting. Details at www.aila.org.au/notinmybackyard/anthroposcene
