Entrants in this year’s inaugural Live & Love Short Film Competition will not only have a chance to win a cash prize, they’ll also help to de-stigmatise the herpes simplex virus (HSV), infections associated with cold sores and genital herpes.

Budding filmmakers nationwide have been challenging myths and community perceptions of HSV infections through the creation of 30-second films.

The Australian Herpes Management Forum encourages the general public to view and vote for their favourite short films by Monday, October 11.

All voters who complete a survey on the site will go into the weekly draw to win a double movie pass or tickets to the Live & Love Short Film Competition Awards.
