14 Apr NYW Vision 2035: Youth in the Spotlight Film Showcase
The contest was open to any youth aged between 12-25 years. The participants were able to enter as an individual or as a group. The participant was to create an appropriate and positive 3-5 minute short film on their vision for the future locally, nationally and internationally. The theme of the video was required to be focused on at least one of the following areas: environment, education and employment, health and community well-being (equality, cultural diversity, events and activities). The videos were judged on the content and message as well as the creativity and presentation of the video.
The winner of $100 cash prize in the group section was ‘Interact Club from Toolooa State High School’ with the video “The First Step”. The $100 cash prize for the individual winner as well as the special prize of a $50 gift voucher for most shares and likes was awarded to Kynan Elliott for his video called “Global Vision for 2035”. All the video entries were displayed and the winners were presented with their rewards at the film showcase evening on the 7th of April at CQ University. The showcase evening was a tremendously successful night full of laughter and chatter. It was enjoyed by all who attended and it was a great opportunity to meet and interact with different people in the community.
Thank you to all the judges Josephine Sidhu (WIN Committee), Linda Pfeiffer (CQU) and Lee McIvor (The Observer) for taking the time to view all the videos and complete all the score sheets. Also a big thanks to all the sponsors; Office of Youth, WIN, CQU as well as Ribs and Rumps. This showcase would not have been possible without your support.
