How does the voting process work?

When the list of shortlisted finalists is published to the Your Call Facebook page, users will be able to vote using Facebook Polling for the finalist they think has produced the best idea and pitch. Only one vote per Facebook user is allowed. The finalist with the most votes will receive a single vote in the Judging process to determine the overall winner. The winner will then be determined by the Judging Panel, taking the Facebook Poll vote into account.

How does the prize money work?

The winning student group will receive JB HiFi vouchers worth $2,400 to divide as they see fit. Prizes will be awarded at a ceremony to be arranged at the school in July 2017 after the winner is announced.

How will the winning student(s) and teacher work with ECU on developing the film?
