Film a video for a chance to win a portable studio

Published

Territory Day is different this year - no fireworks, but the Northern Territory Government is offering three CRACKER PRIZES for students who make a video we can share to celebrate Territory Day 2020.

Using the Territory’s own Black Rock Band’s song “Family”, students are encouraged to submit a short video sharing what they love most about living in the NT, in particular what is special about the place that they live in.

There are no restrictions on creativity - they can sing along to the song, use it as backing track, incorporate artwork, history, poetry or simply tell us on camera what they love about their part of the Territory.

To enter:

  1. Upload each video onto vBrick
  2. Copy submission link URL
  3. Complete the On-line Submission Form

Entries close Friday 19 June. Terms and Conditions apply.

The Chief Minister's Prizes

One school each from the North, South and Remote areas will win one of THREE FIRST PRIZES. Winners receive the ultimate portable multimedia studio, including an iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, Magic Keyboard, Yeti USB microphone, GoPro8 4K Action Cam, mounts and accessories + case. Each prize pack is valued at approximately $5000.

The prizes include expert on-site training for students and teachers at any school in the Territory.

The winners will be announced on 1 July – Territory Day, via the Territory Day 2020 website.

Terms and Conditions

Schools and students entering the competition agree that the Northern Territory Government can publish the name of the school and the name of the students’ class, or classes.

The Northern Territory Government may publish the videos on the Territory Day 2020 website; and may upload them to websites, social media and mainstream media to promote the event.

Entrants agree parts of their video may be edited into a compilation video and used in various forms for non-commercial purposes into the future.

The winners will be announced on the Territory Day 2020 website on July 1, 2020. A first-prize winner will be chosen from three categories:

  1. urban schools in the north
  2. urban schools in the south
  3. All remote schools

The three winners will be selected by the Chief Minister or his delegate, and two other judges. The judges’ decision is final.

Every school in the Territory (government and non-government) is eligible to enter one or more videos. However, if multiple entries are received from the same school, they must be clearly identified as being from different groups of students. Training on using prize technology will be provided on-site at each winning school when biosecurity measures have been lifted, if applicable.

IMPORTANT NOTE: APRA school licences do not allow the broadcast of existing original music on social, online and mainstream media platforms, with the exception of “Family” by Black Rock Band, for which special permission has been granted for this purpose only.
