  • Hi @Grace Millar,

    I'd like some help regarding the 1 minute video. I have an idea of what I want to implement however I'm not sure what the judges will be looking for in particular.

    Any words of advice would be very appreciated.

    Regards,
    Paige

  • Hi @Paige Ridgeway

    Thanks for your question. The 1 minute video can simply be filmed on a phone or personal device, and doesn’t need to be a high quality edited film. It is simply designed to give a visual aid for the judges, and to provide another medium to share your story. This could be an opportunity for you to speak to camera and expand on your written entry, or for your colleagues to provide a testimony about your project/leader/apprentice etc.

    Or you could supply a video showing a product you worked on clips of a project you were part of. Perhaps it could be a video walk through of your site highlighting where you have made improvements.

    I hope this helps, and I'm happy to talk through your specific entry in more detail if you would like.
