Last May, Victoria launched the BYO Bag video contest to encourage residents to ditch their plastic bags ahead of the upcoming bag ban.

Participants were asked to submit a short video based around using reusable bags. Entries were sorted into two categories, youth and all ages, and the best from each were shortlisted for the People’s Choice Award.

Voting is now open for the seven finalists, and the winner will receive a $500 prize!
