First ever funniest farming video competition underway

To celebrate the lighter aspects of farming life, Federated Farmers is putting up a brand new iPad 2 for the winner of its first ever funniest farming video competition.

“This competition is a chance for Kiwis, from both the city and the country, to showcase the humorous side of New Zealand’s farming world,” says Conor English, Federated Farmers chief executive.

“Farming is critical to New Zealand’s success, but our rural areas are also the source of many light hearted events. For example, our recent Federated Farmers Farm day was an opportunity for our city cousins to visit a farm.

“Now we want Kiwis to upload some videos to celebrate the lighter side of farming life.

“We figure there are enough people with funny videos floating around on digital cameras, phones and laptops. You might even want to make one just for this competition.

“The winner will get a brand spanking new iPad 2 to play around with and that’s not a prize to be sneezed at.

“The competition is open to all New Zealand residents. Videos must be in a digital format and no longer than three minutes. Submit your video either through email, our Facebook page or by snail mail. Entries close on 31 May 2011.

“I think this is a great opportunity to harness modern technology for everyone’s entertainment. I can’t wait to see what our entrants come up with,” Mr English concluded.
