Council is shining the spotlight on the people and places that make Marion an exciting place to live, work and play.
Celebrating Marion is a 12-month campaign that will highlight what makes the city special.
Local residents can add their photograph to a three-dimensional artwork, enter an online talent contest, and write about life in their neighbourhood.
There’s a calendar of local achievements on Council’s website and specially designed graphics for businesses and groups to print off and display.
This is the first time Council has highlighted what makes Marion unique in a sustained manner – and you can be involved.
Step into the spotlight
Marion residents are invited to enter Council’s first talent contest.
Celebrating Marion –online allows individuals, groups and businesses to showcase their skills by submitting a video clip of up to 30 seconds to the City of Marion Facebook page.
Three winners will receive a $100 gift voucher.
Submissions could include people demonstrating a sporting, artistic or musical skill, or businesses providing a snapshot of an innovative new product.
Lively and entertaining entries are welcome.
Video clips can be edited “highlights” of an activity and can include stills.
Winners will be selected by a panel of judges. The number of Facebook “likes” entries receive will be taken into consideration, but the judges will make the final decision.
The competition will have three rounds:
Individuals, groups and businesses that enter must be located within the City of Marion.
Upload your video to the City of Marion Facebook page and reveal your hidden talent.
