The trio will join representatives from Netflix, Amazon Studios, Stan., Disney+, and Paramount+, as well as the likes of Tony Ayres, Rosemary Blight, Tracey Robertson, Sophia Zachariou, Alastair McKinnon, Joanna Werner, and Jodi Matterson in participating in the 30-minute one-on-one Zoom consultation meetings to discuss career or project advice with one prize winner.

The money raised will go towards the development initiatives the organisation delivers across the country.

Screenworks CEO Ken Crouch was pleased to have so many high-calibre professionals on board for this year.

“Our annual fundraising raffle has become an important part of the organisation’s ongoing success and its impact on individuals living in regional Australia,” he said.

“We’re grateful for all the support from those who donated their time and those who support us by buying tickets.”

There are separate raffles for each individual who has donated their time – making it possible to purchase tickets for multiple consultations (i.e. multiple raffles).

Winners will be drawn on January 16, 23, and 30. Find out more information on how to enter here.
