I'm running a book trailer-making competition in partnership with Dymocks Children's Charities. Top prize is $500 cash for the filmmaker plus $500 worth of books for your school. Entries close 31 August 2016 at 11:59pm.
All you have to do is make a short video inspired by my new book My Life & Other Exploding Chickens. A book trailer is like a movie trailer but for a book. The competition is open to primary school students across Australia. You might want to make videos as a class project or try to take all the glory and make your own after school.
