Auckland young filmmakers given one minute to shape 10 years

Auckland’s young filmmakers given one minute to shape 10 years

Auckland’s under 25s could win a share of $7000 prize money through Auckland Council’s latest youth video challenge. The videos must be under one minute, and say what Auckland needs to invest in to become the world’s most liveable city.

Filmmakers have from 30 June to midnight 20 July to submit their video. Finalist’s videos will be put on YouTube, with the winners being those with the most views. First place will receive a $3000 prize.

“Auckland is preparing for its biggest ever investment in its future. There are plans for better ways to get around, how we treat our environment, events and things that will make our neighbourhoods safer, and also things that will create new opportunities for young people,” says Auckland Council’s youth advocate, Councillor Linda Cooper.

“This is our chance to hear from our young people about what’s most important to them – for their local areas as well as Auckland as a whole.”

Councillor Cooper says, “It doesn’t matter what you use to film it – a mobile phone is fine. What’s important is the thinking behind it and taking a chance to have your say and shape Auckland’s future; to say what sort of city you want to live in.”

The top videos will be used through the coming year to help encourage other Aucklanders to get engaged in choices around Auckland’s 10- year spending plan, the Long-term Plan 2015-2025, which sets out how much the council will spend, what on, where and when.

Videos can cover local issues or those affecting Auckland as a whole. Entrants can check out visions and ideas for local areas when local board plans are launched for consultation on 7 July.

There is also regional pride at stake, with Wellington City Council set to run a similar competition later in July.

The rules to enter are:
1. you have from 30 June to 20 July to make your video, answering the question: “What should Auckland spend money on to become the world's most liveable city?”
2. videos must be one minute or less
3. you can use a mobile phone or whatever you want to make it. But you must send it to us in .mp4 or .mov format
4. you can make one by yourself, one with your friends or both – and you can enter as many times as you want.
