The following is from Linda Rochford who is looking for a very short 30 second promotional video to be produced for Campus Residences. The ‘winning’ entry will receive a ‘one4all’ voucher worth €500.00 (five hundred Euro).


The purpose of the competition is to design a video for Campus Residences Ltd. in Dublin City University.

This video will focus on the commercial aspect of Campus Residences Ltd and specifically on our summer accommodation.   We have 1000 rooms which we sell during the summer months.  These rooms are ensuite and rates can include a hot buffet breakfast.

Please visit for more information about our business.

We are looking for a creative, vibrant video which will highlight our summer accommodation with special focus on the youth and travel market.

Video Format and Content

The video should be no longer than 30 seconds long and the target audience is the youth and travel market.

We will make an apartment available to film the video.  Students can use their own props/actors in the apartment.  Please contact us to book a date and time to use our apartments.   In addition, students can do some filming in the Helix, DCU Sports and in the restaurants.  Please contact us first to secure a time to film in any of these locations.

Please make the video self-contained, so that newcomers to Campus Residences Ltd.will understand the product.  While the video can be fun, quirky, creative, it should still maintain a degree of professionalism.
