Win a trip to Sydney's Vivid Festival plus Blackhat on Blu-ray

Reinvent your favourite piece of technology and you could be travelling to Sydney to attend a Vivid Ideas Exchange talk, plus a Blu-ray copy of "Blackhat" starring Chris Hemsworth.

Universal Sony Pictures

Directed by the award-winning Michael Mann and starring Australian heavyweight Chris Hemsworth, "Blackhat" is a fast paced, high-tech action film set in some of the most tech-savvy cities in the world.

Nick Hathaway (Hemsworth), a talented computer expert who has gone astray, finds his way out of a 15-year prison sentence when parts of a computer code he wrote in college appear in malware that triggered a nuclear attack in Hong Kong.
