Okay, lets check them out….
FIRST PRIZE WINNER - The RUFF Interview by Olivia Scofield
We laughed our pants off watching Hugo and Rupert discussing whether Hugo is dirty enough to be washed in a K9000® Dog Wash! Olivia has WON 1ST PRIZE - GoPro Hero4 Black edition and Accessories. The package includes a GoPro Fetch Harness, 64 GB Lexar Memory card, Grab bag of mounts and Jaws flex clamp.
Is Hugo dirty enough for a K9000® Dog Wash? In the short film, "The RUFF Interview", Hugo, a fluffy Groodle pup, is interviewed by K9000® Dog Wash expert Rupert, a mature aged Groodle, to determine how dirty Hugo really is and if he is mucky enough to be washed in a K9000® Dog Wash!
Olivia Schofield was the creative director, editor, scriptwriter and cinematographer (with assistance from Jamey Clinch for the drone shot) for this short film.
Olivia has been making shorts films for a few years now and finds the process very rewarding in itself. She incorporates her dogs, friends and family as much as possible. In "The RUFF Interview" she had the help of her Granddad as the voice for Rupert!

Luke has won a Doggy Hamper - treats/leads/dog soap/balls.
After wandering through the wild, Dolly, a smelly and lonely puppy is looking for a home. After numerous rejections due to her foul odour and dishevelled appearance she is taken in by a couple under one iron clad agreement, she must be cleaned. The ensuing scenes illustrate how the K9000 functions, whilst Dolly is cleaned and accepted by the couple as their own.
Dolly's Day Out was created by Indi Morrison (Director), Adam Kelly (Camera) and Luke Kelly (Editor). Indi and Luke are a local Warrnambool couple in their early twenties They have always had an interest for film making. Indi is a travel consultant with Helloword, whilst Luke is an accountant at SHB Business & Wealth Advisers
And, announcing our NEW video prize category...
14 year old Alex Droste from Warrnambool has created this gorgeous video about the adventures of her dog Kelsey for the 2016 K9000 Video Competition. The judges loved it so much that they have created a special prize for Alex - a $200 gift voucher - and have created a new competition category 'Best video from 10-18 year old'. Congratulations Alex!
Alex loves surfing and spending time training with the Warrnambool Surf Club. She loves being active outside, spending heaps of time at the beach with her friends and Kelsey (her dog).
Alex explains how she created her film,
“Kelsey is our family pet and I wanted to make a film to show all the things she loves doing and how much she loves the water. I made the film all by myself. I have a water action camera that I filmed it with and I finished editing the movie on my iPad.”
Alex said about the competition,
“I found out about the competition on Facebook and I filmed my movie at the river near my house and at the local beach. There is a K9000 Dog Wash on Mortlake Rd in Warrnambool which is not far from our home. I entered this competition because I love making little movies and taking photos, and I love my dog Kelsey.”
