Are you under 25 and want to have your work recognised?
The first inter-region youth video competition will open on Monday 30 June 2014.
You’ll have one minute to make your mark and shape the next 10 years. You could win $3000, have your video viewed by thousands and really help influence Auckland’s future.
Wellington will be running a similar competition at the same time, so there’s regional pride at stake here too.
The challenge is to make a video one minute or less, which will answer the question:
“What should Auckland spend money on to become the world’s most liveable city?”
The rules to enter are:
- you have from 30 June to 20 July 2014 to make your video, answering the question
- videos must be one minute or less
- you can use a mobile phone or whatever you want to make it. But you must send it to us in .mp3 or .mov format
- videos can be uploaded to dropbox.com or onedrive.live.com and you can email us the link; or send it to us on a DVD or pen drive (Video Challenge, Auckland Council, Private Bag 92300, Victoria Street West, Auckland 1142)
- you can make one by yourself, one with your friends or both – and you can enter as many times as you want
- for ideas, have a look at what your local board is planning for where you live, or learn more about the 10-year budget
- you must submit the video with an entry form and if you are younger than 18 you’ll need a parent’s or guardian’s permission.
Finalists will be selected by Youth Advisory Panel, and will feature on Auckland Council’s YouTube channel.
The video with the most views by 5pm 30 September will win a $3000 prize, and will be used by Auckland Council to help promote the draft Long-term Plan (2015-2025).
The Wellington competition will be run separately, but don’t let the capital outshine New Zealand’s biggest city.
