Win A $1000 Visa Gift Card By Making A Video Of Something You Love

Make A Video Of Something You’re Passionate About & You Could Win A $1000 Gift Card

Sometimes it feels like all I’ve achieved this year is finally clearing out my watch list.

And hey, that’s fine. It’s fine. But it might be time to get behind the camera instead: right now that could score you a $1000 Visa gift card from Billy Blue College of Design at Torrens University Australia.

Billy Blue has three incredible Bachelor of Digital Media Design courses – you can major in Film and Video Design, 3D Design and Animation, or Interaction and UX Design – that teach you how to create amazing worlds and characters. If you’ve ever wanted to tell meaningful stories through animation and film, this is where you should start. And now Billy Blue is dropping some serious cash to inspire creators.

All you have to do to enter is make a 30-60 second video – with at least one transition or sound effect – of something you’re passionate about and upload it below. We’ll pick the best clip and the winner will receive a $1000 gift card to spend on whatever they like.


It could be a video of you watching reality TV with a slick home-made filter over the top, a slow-mo vid of you making your famous cheese toasties, or a quick recap in surround sound about how to recycle. We just want to see you get creative with filters, transitions, effects, or music to share what you’re passionate about.

And yes, sending us an entire minute of your dog being cute is 100% acceptable. But no, sending us your rendition of the ‘WAP’ dance isn’t.

Want some inspo to get your masterpiece started? Check out how Sebastien Phillips does it. We challenged this talented Billy Blue graduate to make a 30-second video using the animation skills he learned during his degree to raise awareness about something he cares about.

But don’t worry, your video doesn’t have to be as slick as his to win. We just want to see what you’re passionate about and how you present that to the world.

Lights, camera, action!
