UIA NSW has launched its inaugural Israel short film competition, ‘My Israel’ with various schools in August.

High school students from Emanuel School, Moriah College and Masada College have submitted short films about Israel in the hope of discovering more about it and winning a sponsored voucher towards travel to our homeland.

The purpose of the competition is to engage the community through Israel education and UIA, as well as generate more awareness about Israel and create a sense of unity within the Sydney community.

In small teams, students have created short films about Israel covering topics including history, food, politics, culture, hi-tech and tourism. The films will be published on the UIA Australia Facebook page.

One team from each school will win sponsored vouchers towards travel to Israel, with the first prize worth $5000.

The film’s score is a combination of points given by the school committee and the number of Likes received on Facebook.

UIA is encouraging the community and competition participants’ family and friends to Like and share the videos online.

“At UIA, we are for the People of Israel, so what could be better than school students educating the community about topics related to Israel? There is so much we don’t know about our amazing State, and the short films will be a fantastic tool to educate in a fun way. We are excited to launch this brand new project, which will benefit the whole community. May the best film win!” UIA NSW Shaliach Adi Gefen Adler said.

Videos will be launched on 5-7 August, with each video published for 24 hours. All videos will be shared for an additional 24 hours from 8 August.
