Farm Flicks contest is open to young Canadian videographers

Young Canadian adults between ages of 16 and 24 can get out video cameras this summer to capture and create clips about Canadian farming - for a chance to win a wide variety of prizes.

The Farm Flicks contest is being sponsored by the Farm Care Foundation.

Contestants will create a one to two minute video on one of five topics. They will then submit their videos, electronically to the Farm Care Foundation for approval before being posted to YouTube. 

Video topics include:

- Eating local food;

- Who are Canadian farmers?

- Farming and the planet;

- Farm animal care; and

- Agriculture - much more than food.

The deadline for submissions is Nov. 30.  Contestants will be encouraged to promote their videos to friends, families, and social media contacts.

Prize winners will be determined by the number of views each video receives on YouTube between Dec. 10 and 31.

The grand prize winner will receive a Playbook, with secondary prizes of a digital camera or cash.

Full details can be found in the discussion section at

The contest was launched on June 28 at St. Anne’s High School, in Clinton, during a breakfast for the graduating class, which featured local foods grown in Huron County.

The Farm Care Foundation, an initiative of the Ontario Farm Animal Council (OFAC) and AGCare (Agricultural Groups Concerned about Resources and the Environment), focuses its activities on promoting public trust and confidence in food and farming. Entries received from the Farm Flicks contest will be used by the foundation in future educational efforts. For more information visit
