McLeod’s Daughters may well have ceased production near the town, but Gawler is once again abuzz with cries of “lights, camera, action” as local school children capture their dad’s Fathers’ Day wishes for a local competition.

Entrants must produce a two-minute video, upload it to You Tube, and register on www.gawlergold.com.au to enter their dad in the running for a Fathers’ Day splurge sourced from the 420 local businesses in Gawler.

One thousand dollars of local shopping is up for grabs, split between the winning video entry and the local school with the most participants.

“We’re hoping this competition will shine a light back on the diversity of shops and businesses in our town,” says Louise Drummond, Chair of the Gawler Business Development Group.

“Gawler is partly a big country town and partly a small suburban precinct, and that means you get a little of both worlds with big name retailers next to authentic, family-run businesses with their unique offerings.

“While this competition will be shouting about Gawler to the world, our goal is to welcome back those locals who have been shopping out of town, and shoppers from Adelaide looking for a refreshing change of scene,” she says.

The You Tube Fathers’ Day Competition runs until noon on Saturday, September 5, 2009, and the winner will be announced on Monday, September 7, 2009.
