Queenslanders Share Their ‘Vote Yes’ Videos, And We Want To See Yours


What does a “yes” vote in the same-sex marriage postal survey mean to you?

QNews has asked our readers to create a 30-second video on a mobile phone answering this question. Entries will go into the draw to win two great prizes: the Judge’s Choice video will win $500 and the People’s Choice video will win $250.

Watch some of the entries so far below, and scroll down for details on how you can make history in the “yes” campaign and enter your own video into the running!





If you want to enter our competition, create a 30-second video on your mobile phone with the following brief: “Explain to family and friends what a ‘yes vote’ in the postal survey means to you.”

This competition is proudly made possible by QNews, the Sportsman Hotel and Nash Accounting and Taxation and all entries will be shown online via the QNews YouTube channel and at a Sunday afternoon BBQ at the Sportsman Hotel in Brisbane. Entries close on October 8 at 12 noon.
