Trop Jr Finalists

Trop Jr has announced its 16 finalist films.

To make the cut, entrants had to create a film of less than seven minutes based on a signature item, which for December 2013 was ‘Monster’.

The 16 finalists come from across Australia, with most of the shorts being directed by first-time Trop Jr entrants.

This year, the finalists will compete for a stack of great prizes including a $5,000 cash prize for the winning film. 

Some talented youngsters are actually taking their second shot at the big prize.
