Join the Brand without a Bottle Project

Sydney Water is really excited to offer your Year 7 and 8 English students the chance to take part in a short film competition in Terms 1 and 2, 2018. Finalists will work with a professional film crew and short films will be produced and shared on the big screen!

Why should your class participate?

It’s a great way to engage your students, spark their imagination and creativity and improve their persuasive writing skills.

The program is fun, engaging, meets the NSW English Syllabus and there are great prizes to be won. 

What are the prizes?

The best six scripts and storyboards will be selected and professionally filmed. All finalist schools will receive a permanent water refill station, refillable water bottles and be in the running for cash prizes to be used for water projects or resources in their school.

  • Grand Prize: $3,000 cash 
  • Second Prize: $2,000 cash 
  • Third prize: $1,500 cash
