Local's Share Your Extraordinary Video Competition

Local's Share Your Extraordinary Video Competition

Our Share Your Extraordinary Video competition ran for three months earlier this year and attracted 17 incredible entries. These videos showed, from a locals perspective, just how extraordinary life in Nelson Tasman can be.

The competition encouraged locals to share their unique Nelson Tasman story, for the chance to win a hometown holiday for themselves and an out-of-town friend, thanks to the local business community. 

Three prizes worth thousands of dollars (including flights, accommodation, activities, meal vouchers and other local goodies) gave prize-winners the opportunity to share their enthusiasm for the region with a friend or relative, and to immerse themselves in some of our regions extraordinary experiences.
