How it Works
We want to know what motivates you to swim - are you taking a step towards a healthier
lifestyle? Is getting out in the open water your ultimate stress buster? Are you
taking on the challenge of a Great Swim to raise money for a worthy cause?
We’re looking for short videos (90 seconds or less) answering the simple question
“Why I Swim”.
Feel free to be as creative or as simple as you like - shoot it on your lap top,
mobile phone or hand held camera – don’t worry about the production values – we
just want to hear your story!

The video submissions will be narrowed down to ten finalists by a panel of judges,
the Great Swim Community will then be asked to vote for the overall winner.
The 2.9km State Harbour Crossing Swim 2013 see’s all marine traffic in the country’s
busiest port suspended as thousands of swimmers take on the course starting at Quinton
Park, Bayswater and ending at the Karanga Plaza, Viaduct Harbour.

Events, the Auckland Harbour Crossing is one of six events in the exciting

be asked to vote for the overall winner in October.
Plus, each month a random winner will be picked to win a goodybag from our official
