Your entry

Entrants are asked to create a short entertaining video documenting their solution to an industry issue. The issue can be big or small but must be applicable to the whole industry not just a particular breed or region.

It could be that you have come up with an idea to make drenching a whole lot easier or something as simple as a feeder using materials anyone has on their property.

As long as it is rated G, is under 2 minutes, is a positive piece featuring sheep and wool industry relevant content, your video can take any style you like – it could be a music video, a comedy skit, a cartoon, a documentary…

Your entry will be judged on:

  • If it is in accordance with the Terms and Conditions and less than 2 minutes long
  • If it contains positive messages about the sheep and wool industry
  • How innovative your solution is to the issue
  • If the solution is relevant to the whole sheep and wool industry not just a particular breed or region
  • How creative your submission is
