Entering is simple. Basically, entry into The Biggest Baddest Bucket List will automatically also include you in the Isle of Wight’s own competition also. The only condition? Your video must be about the Isle of Wight. You don’t have to live here, you just have to know it well enough to make a short video about the destination. The local Isle of Wight prizes are for just one lucky winner. Isle of Wight video entries will be independently judged by Wightlink and Visit Isle of Wight. The winner will be judged once the The Biggest Baddest Bucket List winner is announced.
