Are You the Shropshire

LASS or LAD?

 

Win Great PriZes!

Be part of the shropshire quest this summer! 

The Wood Brewery will be running the Shropshire Quest to find our Shropshire Lad and Lass. Do you have what it takes to stand apart from all other Salopians? 

We are looking to find the two people that personify Shropshireness the most! 

Starting at the Shrewsbury Food Festival and then running at locations across Shropshire over the summer, you can take on our challenge*.  

Each heat Winner (Lad and Lass) from the individual locations will win dinner for 2 at the Wood Brewery and a personal training session at Love Fitness and will then go forward to the grand final at Shropshire Oktoberfest on Saturday 6th October 2018 in the Shrewsbury Quarry Park!

If you can't make one of the events, don't worry you can still enter online!

There are two parts to our online application process:

  1. A written application
 - download the form here!
  2. A video application

 

Both need to be completed in full and submitted before 15th September 2018 to be considered for the grand final. The two applicants that are judged to have best captured the essence of Shropshire will be taken forward to the Grand Final at Oktoberfest alongside the challenge winners.

We want you to show us your Shropshireness!

Let’s help you find out if you should apply?

  • Are you from Shropshire?
  • Do you want to win lots of amazing prizes worth up to £5,000?
  • Do you embody our vision of the ultimate Shropshire Lad or Shropshire Lass?

 .. then you it could be you! 

All you have to do is fill out The Shropshire Quest Application form (download here) with information about yourself… This is your story, tell it your way. Fill in each field with as much information as possible…  Then upload a 2-minute video to the Woods Facebook Page 

Planning and thinking through your video application is essential - we want someone who stands out from the crowd and can show us that they are the true spirit of Shropshire in order to be crowned the Shropshire Lad or Lass.

We will have LOADS of applicants so make sure you bring something new to the table!

A few key tips:

  • Shoot in landscape (that’s the sideways one).
  • Record in the highest quality possible – don’t worry, our servers can take it.
  • Try to avoid background noise, unless you’re going for a crowd scene...
  • Be as creative and unique as possible - really think about ways you can stand out from everyone else
  • Should you have any questions regarding your upload, you can contact us for help.

 

WHAT ELEMENTS SOULD YOUR 2 MINUTE VIDEO INCLUDE?

We love Shropshire and there’s so many aspects which make Shropshire special, we think that our ultimate Shropshire Lad and Lass should showcase that they have the same qualities.

So in your video you MUST show us that you cover these elements and how you embody all the things that make Shropshire the wonderful county that it is!

  • Heritage
  • Industrial
  • Food & Drink
  • Community & Friendliness
  • The Great Outdoors

 

The video that we judge to best embody the Shropshire Lad and Shropshire Lass spirit will be taken through to the grand final (alongside the winners of the festival challenges over the summer) at the Shropshire Oktoberfest in the Quarry Park in Shrewsbury on 6th October 2018, where you could be crowned the Shropshire Lad or Lass.
