Race Around Ekka

Race Around Ekka School Film Competition

Students will get those cameras rolling as they race around Ekka - planning, scripting, directing, shooting, editing and producing a TV commercial.

Their challenge is to create a 15 or 30 second ad within 24 hours, which excites and encourages families with children to attend the Ekka to make memories of their own.

This year, almost 50 entries from 11 schools have been received - they’re in the race for amazing prizes! First place winners will receive a Start-Up Filmmaking Kit for iPad Pro and the winner’s school class will receive a half day Short Film and Television Production with Visual Effects Workshop.

View their videos on our Ekka YouTube channel -
