The Party Safe Award will be awarded to the best film depicting a message/messages to share with other young people about how to keep everyone safe and having a good time at parties.

There is also a special $200 prize for the film with the strongest ‘Sustainability’ theme. This prize is sponsored by the Nimbin Neighbourhood and Information Centre.
