Jurassic Seas Film Competition

  • Wednesday 28th October 2015

Construction is well underway at Kelly Tarlton's, installing the all-new Jurassic Seas experience, where guests will be transported millions of years back into pre-historic times, when fearsome sea monsters prowled the oceans.
Something this amazing definitely needs a TV commercial!

Unfortunately, we blew our advertising budget on shark food…do you have any idea how much food sharks eat? Hint: it's a lot!

Not to be defeated, we've worked out where we could find the most talented, creative, deadline-driven videographers in Auckland!

We're inviting primary school students across Auckland to plan, shoot and edit a 30-second Kelly Tarlton's television commercial that could air live on telly.

Not only will the winning class' advert run live on television, the winning class will also win a Kelly Tarlton's sleepover experience for their entire class PLUS a brand new GoPro Hero 3+ Silver Edition (worth $429), capable of shooting underwater for all your submarine adventures!


About Jurassic Seas:


Opening just in time for the Christmas school holidays, Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium's Jurassic Seas exhibit will further educate guests about the evolution of some of the most mysterious sea creatures that ever lived.
Jurassic Seas will also highlight important conservation messages surrounding our ancient marine life, such as overfishing and habitat loss, despite having survived for 500 million years already.
