New Challenge for the students who have already completed the 2012 PRC!!

The students who have already completed the 2012 PRC will be taking on a
new challenge-
 To celebrate the National Year of Reading, students are challenge to create an eBooktrailer as a way of motivating others to read something that they really enjoyed.

Book trailers are similar to movie trailers, in that they are designed to build interest in a novel and to encourage people to read the book. The main difference is that a movie trailer is based on clips from the film.
 With a book trailer, the maker has to convert the written words into visual images, text and audio. A book trailer conveys a sense of what the book is about without giving anything away - and without really clearly defining what the characters, location and objects look like, allowing readers to visualise what they are reading about as they imagine it themselves.

Extended deadline Wed 1 August  See WeCreate website for further details

Fantastic prizes from our sponsors will be awarded 
at the ceremony at the
Sydney Opera House in November.

Students can start by viewing other student created booktrailers and 
deconstructing the features that are most effective.
