HAVE YOUR SAY: AUSTRALIAN STORIES ON SVODs
GRASSROOTS ACTIVATION KIT
The Federal Government is undertaking a targeted stakeholder consultation around Australian screen content requirements on streaming services. These requirements are vital to the future of our industry and to ensuring Australian stories and IP are created by Australians for local and global audiences.
Now is the time to make your individual voices heard by contacting your local Member of Parliament and providing your experiences, perspectives and feedback on the consultation. Your voice has never been so important.
The Make It Australian campaign has put together resources to assist you in sharing the Australian screen industry perspective in this debate. This includes a detailed grassroots activation kit and a webinar in August where you can ask questions and learn more about the consultation process.
Attend our explanatory webinar on 15 August at 1pm AESt to find out more and ask questions: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81330575264
