Ruby Rose gives a big shout out to winning BackMeUp film-makers

BackMeUp Campaign Ambassador Ruby Rose has posted a special video message to all our sensational BackMeUp winners.

Congratulating the winners on their “amazing” films, Ruby says the campaign and competition was an “incredible effort from everyone.”

Ten lucky young people were announced late yesterday as the winners of the national anti-cyberbullying fim competition which saw more than 100 films submitted from all over the country.

They are now set to head to Sydney for a one week all expenses paid film making workshop at NIDA where they’ll produce a 30 second commercial on the importance of being an active bystander to cyberbullying.

“The films were all outstanding and we were so impressed,” Ruby says in the video.
