An Seqwater contest to find ‘the ultimate safey star’

Posted on 16.01.2017

Seqwater is here to help make your summer a safer one. Your safety at Seqwater’s dams, lakes and parks is our top priority. And while there’s a serious side to safety we also want you to have fun. Next time you’re out having fun, take a Safey – it’s a selfie of you playing it safe. Take it of yourself or invite your friends, family or team mates to join in the fun.

Seqwater is searching for the face of the Easter Safety campaign. Could you be the Safey Star?

Entering Seqwater’s popular #safey competition is a snap

Smile – you’re in with a chance of snapping up some great prizes in an exciting contest that combines selfies and safety.

Selfie-enthusiasts and smartphone photographers can once again showcase their talents with the return of Seqwater’s popular #safey competition.  For the uninitiated, a safey – a word now defined by Urban Dictionary – involves taking a photo of yourself ‘playing it safe’ while enjoying an outdoor activity.  Past entries have included photos of people demonstrating safe behaviour while jet-skiing, horse-riding, boating or fishing.

The contest will culminate with one lucky entrant crowned ‘the ultimate safey star’, winning a $5000 BCF gift card and becoming the face of Seqwater’s Easter safety campaign. Over the eight weeks of the competition, entrants who upload their photos to the www.safey.com.au website will have the chance to win weekly prizes. Seqwater spokesman Mike Foster said during the summer holidays, South East Queensland’s lakes and parks became a hive of activity among visitors and locals.

“The summer provides a great opportunity to for people to take advantage of recreational opportunities and show us how they stay safe while having a great time,” Mr Foster said.  “Seqwater rangers regularly patrol our recreation sites but they can’t be everywhere, so we rely on visitors to play it safe by being prepared and being mindful of others enjoying the great outdoors.

“We hope that by having people share their safe behaviours when taking part in outdoor activities, it will encourage others to do the same.”

The #safey photo can be of yourself, family, friends, a sporting team or community group. The most important criteria is that you are demonstrating safe behaviour while enjoying an outdoor recreation activity.

Mr Foster said the safey website contained more information about the competition, as well as examples of last year’s winning entries.
