The Western Australian of the Year Awards recognises the very best people in our state in the areas of Community, Business, Sport, Youth, Arts & Culture, Professions, and Aboriginal categories.
To begin the 2018 awards show season, and to encourage people to nominate those in their lives who deserve recognition, Celebrate WA (the Government department dedicated to organising the awards) asked Birdhouse Media to create a series of videos showing why it’s a great idea to nominate those they think are worthy.
We organised some well-known previous Western Australian of the Year category award winners to speak in studio about what the awards meant to them. We shot in a simple, documentary style in black and white to draw out the emotion of the words rather than overshadow them with too much footage.
Our videos, as part of the overall promotion, helped generate more nominations for the WA of the Year awards than ever before!
