Kitchen Garden Program Video Competition 2018

Tuesday, November 27, 2018

This year the Foundation held its first-ever Kitchen Garden Program Video Competition, and we are very excited to announce the winners.

The competition was open to our Kitchen Garden Program Schools and Kitchen Garden Classroom members, and we had lots of fantastic videos sent in from all around Australia.

The videos, about any aspect of a school or centre’s kitchen garden program, were made using a variety of techniques. There were videos filmed by current and past students of schools, videos shot with drones, videos filmed on mobile phones, and videos featuring impressive special effects.

The Kitchen Garden Foundation team loved watching all the entries, but there were three videos that stood out and were selected as finalists in the competition.

To help us decide on the winner, we screened the three finalists’ videos at our Big Melbourne Kitchen Garden Professional Development Day on 26 October and asked the participants at the day to vote for their favourite video. 

Scroll down to see the winning videos, or go to our YouTube channel.

1st prize – Bowenville State School, Queensland. We loved the interviews in this video with Barry, the scarecrow in the school’s kitchen garden, and the way the students used vegetables as pretend microphones!

2nd prize – Delacombe Primary School, Victoria. Look out for some very clever special effects in this video about the life cycle of the school’s ‘black gold’ compost.

3rd prize – Mypolonga Primary School, South Australia. This video took its inspiration from the first prize in the video competition – a KitchenAid stand mixer – and gave us all a good laugh.
