“This competition is part of the wider project to gather stories of Canberra’s Diaspora,” Mr Lasek said. “It’s open to anyone from students, politicians, public servants, musicians or one-time visitors, who can enter by uploading a video to the Canberra Diaspora website.

“The video should tell a story about their connection to Canberra, and can also focus on parents or grandparents who have made a significant contribution to the making and growing of the nation’s capital.”

First prize includes:
  • Return flights for two people from any capital city in Australia
  • A 5-star accommodation package for two people, for two nights
  • Canberra Theatre show tickets for four people
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner vouchers at some of Canberra’s best restaurants and cafes
  • Car rental for two days
  • A Legacy of Good Design prize pack
  • A specially-designed itinerary of Canberra attractions
Second prize includes a Canberra Glassworks voucher to the value of $600 and third prize is a Craft ACT Shop voucher to the value of $400.

The competition is open from 22 July to 10 September, with all entries uploaded to the Canberra Diaspora website during this time in the running.
