#MyFreoStory video competition launched


The City of Fremantle is calling on budding film makers, storytellers and lovers of all things Freo to share their unique ‘Fremantle story’ in a short video for a chance to share in a $7,000 prize pool.

The competition, run online through the City’s Fremantle story website (www.fremantlestory.com.au), is a way to showcase the many different aspects of Freo through the eyes of locals, visitors and anyone else with an interest and passion for Freo.

Freo has always had a lot to offer but the current transformation is really exciting and many people would be surprised at just how many new and different things the port city has to offer. I’m sure the videos will capture and highlight some of these hidden gems as well as the favourites we all know and love.

There are two chances to win, people’s choice and the major prize. The winners of each category will  take home $2,250 cash and five $250 vouchers to spend at each of Fremantle Markets, National Hotel Fremantle, MANY 6160, Fishing Boat Harbour Trader Group and Bathers Beach House

The people’s choice award will be selected by a tally of likes and comments on the #MyFreoStory videos and the major prize for most creative and original storytelling will be selected by a panel of City of Fremantle judges.

#MyFreoStory video launch

To launch the competition Fremantle story has released its own short film, featuring aspiring film maker and hometown hero ‘Dusty’. The epic port city video features Dusty’s favourite places in Freo as well as details about the competition.
