Healthy Waterways Video Competition Screening Winner Announced
06 September 2017
Videos promoting healthy waterways lit up Harmony Square in Dandenong last month.
The Healthy Waterways Video Competition was an initiative of the City of Greater Dandenong and forms part of the Living Rivers project funded by Melbourne Water.
Members of the local community, aged between 5 and 25, were asked to create a short video which promotes the different ways the community can help keep our waterways clean, healthy and litter free.
A selection of the top 10 videos submitted were screened on Friday, 25 August at 6pm.
Pantalones’ by local resident Jeannie Psomoulis was the overall winner and was awarded $1000.
Her video follows a young woman’s garbage which she carelessly throws into the gutter on the side of the road. She sets off a chain reaction involving magical pants and a dress that eventually find their way home.
Two students from Wooranna Park Primary School in Dandenong North were awarded the People’s Choice Award.
Bethany Pik and Luka Stakic, both in Grade 2, produced a video called Protecting Our Dandenong Waterways. The video follows a group of young students and the journey they embark on to help improve the health of waterways and the environment. They received a $250 prize.
Due to the success of this year’s competition the Healthy Waterways Video Competition is back for 2018.
Entries open on Monday, 2 October and close 4pm on 25 January 2018.
