Book Trailer Competition
Lights! Camera! Action! Schools in NSW have the chance to enter an exciting Book Trailer competition!
The NSW branch of the Children’s Book Council of Australia have just launched a new Book Trailer competition called COLLIDE. It’s open for grades 3-9 in NSW and you can chose either a book from the 2020 notables list or from the Premier’s Reading Challenge list.
Book trailers are heaps of fun to make plus they are a great way for students to respond to books. Making short videos also improves tech skills and it could be a great drama activity for students to act in. You can read my thoughts on book trailers plus see some tips here.
I get to be one of the judges for this competition alongside the amazing Deborah Abela and Tristan Bancks. You can find their tips and more on the official Collide page, which can be found here.
The competition is open now and closes August 16.
