For your application, including recipe/concept creation and bar team video, you can involve as many bar team members as you want! The finalist bars must choose 2-3 team members to represent the wider team at the finale.
We want the competition to be as fair as possible and will only be judging the video based on its contents, not on quality or editing. Filming with a GoPro or phone will be sufficient, no need for expensive gear and editing!
In order for your video to be considered, it must be uploaded to one or more of the following social media platforms: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, youtube.
If this is the case, you can upload your video to youtube by easily creating an account and share the link with your application.
Competition opens on 7th Jan and the last day for entries and video postings is 4th Feb. As soon as you submit your entry, the 4 week countdown begins – for example, if you submit your entry on 7th Jan, the 4 week period will end on 4th Feb. If you submit your entry on 4th Feb, the 4 week period will end on 4th March. You will be mystery shopped in your 4th week.
