Do you want to help young people get a better understanding of real life entrepreneurs in Wycombe District?
Would a free 1 minute video about your business help to raise its profile?
Then the Wycombe Advertising Video for Enterprise (WAVE) competition is for you! Organised by Buckinghamshire New University in conjunction with the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), the aim is to give teams of up to 4 students the opportunity to spend a day with you to explore what it means to be a Real-Life Entrepreneur. In return they will make a one minute video promoting your business which will be entered into the WAVE competition.
WAVE arose from a suggestion generated through the Wycombe District Council Chairman's small business initiative last winter and will showcase the importance of small businesses to economic development in the local community.
Local companies are now being approached, and schools will be invited to join the competition after Easter, with filming taking place during the first part of the autumn term.
Awards will be made for the best videos in several categories, including best overall promotional video, best dialogue, best animation. And the participating companies could end up with a video that they can use on YouTube or on their own websites.
Buckinghamshire New University will be hosting the awards ceremony on 29th November.
We've put together an impressive panel of judges. Click to get your WAVE information pack!
To find out about taking part or about sponsoring one of the awards, please call 01494 814748 or email email@example.com
