Transition Year students in Cork and across Ireland are being encouraged to get involved in the new Guaranteed Irish video competition, with the aim to produce creative videos profiling businesses at community level.

Transition Year students are invited to create a short video of a Guaranteed Irish Business in their community. Entries will be judged on originality, creativity, plot, pacing, structure, direction, writing (where applicable), entertainment value and overall quality of production.

Entries are to be submitted between Tuesday, 2 May and Friday, 5 May via a Dropbox account to Guaranteed Irish. A shortlist of eight videos will be selected for the judging panel and announced on Friday 11 May. The winning school will be announced on Monday 22 May.

Members of the judging panel include: Stefanie Pressier, Screenwriter, Playwright and Actor; Elaine Geraghty, CEO Screen Producers Ireland (SPI); Garry McHugh, Director, Young Irish Film Makers; Shane Byrne, CEO Showoff, Maser, Artist and Guaranteed Irish Hero and Brid O’Connell, CEO, Guaranteed Irish.

The winning school will receive a website designed and developed by Showoff, along with a workshop on app development for Transition Year students. The winning school will also receive a three-day workshop in film-making from Young Irish Film Makers.

CEO of Guaranteed Irish, Brid O’Connell said: “We are really excited to announce details of the Guaranteed Irish video competition, where we are calling on Transition Year students to make a short video about local businesses in their community.

“We hope that the competition gets Transition Year students involved with their locality, and most importantly that they meet with local businesses in Cork. There are some terrific prizes for the winning school with a brand-new website and film training up for grabs – so we encourage schools in Cork and right across Ireland to get involved.”

Speaking at yesterday’s launch, Minister Bruton TD said: “I am delighted to launch this Guaranteed Irish video competition. This is an excellent opportunity for Transition Year students to learn both about business and enterprise in their local communities and also to enhance their education in film studies. I wish the very best of luck to all students involved in the competition and I hope that students will feel engaged with the businesses in their communities.”
