Australian filmmaker Tiffany Hoy was named winner of the international AnthropoScene film competition at the National Museum of Australia on 28 October 2016.

Tiffany won $7000, with the $3000 second prize awarded to Evan Mather of the United States. The film competition was framed around the new Anthropocene epoch and the profoundly frightening yet somehow incredibly optimistic landscapes of the 21st century. It attracted more than 140 entries.
