2018 Sydney Water 'Brand without a Bottle' Competition

Again as in 2017,  Sydney Water invited students in schools across Sydney to use their creative skills to persuade people to choose tap water over bottled water and help reduce plastic waste.


Hawkesbury High School is a finalist in the Sydney Water short film competition 'Brand without a Bottle'!


Hundreds of students met the challenge, joined the short film competition and submitted their very persuasive ideas. Students drafted ideas, wrote scripts and acted in the short films.  In early August, professional film crews worked with the students bringing their ideas to life and the short films will be launched online for voting on 21st of August.


Now they need your vote. Head to and go to the Gallery page to vote for your favourite from 21 Aug to 3 Sept 2018


Winners will be announced at a red carpet private screening 13 Sept and winning schools receive a water refill station and funds towards water-related learning resources.


A little background and information our Hawkesbury High students learned after entering Sydney Water Competition:


Australians bought over a million plastic water bottles in 2017? If this trend continues, we’ll have purchased five billion plastic water bottles by 2040! The goal of the competition aims to reduce plastic waste and these creative students are using their talents to both learn and teach others about the over-use of plastic water bottles. Just get your head around five billion water bottles, if you can!


Hawkesbury High is among the finalists -- in other words, these students' efforts are 'short-listed'. The winning schools receive a water refill station and cash prizes towards water-related learning resources.Really quite exciting! They just need your vote!
