Youth Video Challenge

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.
