Closing date looms to Handle your Jandal

Just under three weeks remains for entries to the Radio Active 89FM's Handle the Jandal, the nationwide competition for creative Kiwis to make their own music video.

The deadline for entries is 10am, Monday October 13, 2008. All entry requirements and information is available from Radio Active 89FM’s website or Hadden Morrison, ph 04 801 9899, email

Handle the Jandal is the annual competition for Do-It-Yourself New Zealand filmmakers to create music videos for local bands and artists. It’s about matching rising music stars with up’n’coming filmmakers, so all videos must be completely self-funded and may only use New Zealand music.

Music videos do not have to be produced especially for Handle the Jandal. Entries will be considered for all music videos so long as they were made in 2008 and self-funded.

This will be the 10th Handle the Jandal competition. After a one-year hiatus, it has moved to a new venue, the spacious and regal St James Theatre, Courtenay Place on Thursday November 27, 2008.

At the 2006 awards, 93 entries from aspiring filmmakers and give-it-a-goers competed for prizes across seven categories.

A panel of judges will decide Best Editing, Best use of Exploitative Tactics to Promote a Band, Best Cinematography, Best Concept, Best Animation and Rising Star. An audience vote at the awards will decide the seventh golden flip flop category: the Favourite Handle the Jandal Video award winner.

All videos may be promoted and re-broadcast on television, mobile phone networks and social networking websites.

Radio Active 89FM acknowledges NZ on Air, The New Zealand Film Archive, Ocean Design and Kraft:Haus for their continuing support.
