The Centenary of Canberra team are launching a contest to win a bunch of fun stuff, all you’ve got to do is make them a video explaining your connection to Canberra.

The Executive Director of the Centenary of Canberra, Jeremy Lasek, encourages Canberrans to help spread to word among family and friends who have passed through, worked or studied in Canberra.

“This competition is part of the wider project to gathering the stories of Canberra’s Diaspora,” Mr Lasek said. “It’s open to anyone from students, politicians, public servants, musicians or one-time visitors, who can enter by uploading a video to the Canberra Diaspora website.

“The video should tell a story about their connection to Canberra, and can also focus on parents or grandparents who have made a significant contribution to the making and growing of the nation’s capital.”

First prize includes:

• Return flights for two people from any capital city in Australia
• 5-star accommodation package for two people, for two nights
• Canberra Theatre show tickets for four people
• Breakfast, lunch and dinner vouchers at some of Canberra’s best restaurants and cafes
• Car rental for two days
• A Legacy of Good Design prize pack
• A specially-designed itinerary of Canberra attractions

Second prize includes a Canberra Glassworks voucher to the value of $600 and third prize is a Craft ACT Shop voucher to the value of $400.

If any of you win and feel like giving me all your prizes I will write nice things about you.

The competition is open from 22 July to 10 September, with all entries uploaded to the Canberra Diaspora website during this time in the running.
