How You Can Show Your True Colours?

This year and in line with our event theme of ‘show your true colours’ we would like to showcase our great South Australian water sector in doing just that. Coupled with our musical act that will play throughout the night, we would like to run a background reel of you, your team and your business and others across the industry demonstrating the colours that mean the most to you.

Creative Inspiration

  • Team photo
  • Individual photo
  • Wearing your favourite footy or team colours
  • Short video of you playing for your sporting team or individual    sport
  • Winning an award, accepting a trophy or an achievement you’re proud of
  • Corporate days
  • Demonstrating what showing your true colours means to you
  • Or even a team or individual video and/or photo specific to this task!

The possibilities are endless, and we encourage you to be as creative as you like and don’t forget that as in previous years, we’d like to peel back those layers and get to those raw personalities that we know are hiding behind our professional day to day.

Photos – Good quality high resolution photo
Video – short videos of 30 secs or less

Due Date / Timing
