Summary In this paper we describe how an Australian health promotion agency combined short information sheets and ‘micro-movies’ to encourage the uptake of evidence associated with a food security initiative. Although commended by intended users for being innovative, a follow up study of the dissemination approach produced few tangible examples of learnings being translated into action. The paper provides an overview of the general rationale underlying the mixed-media research dissemination strategy and identifies barriers that resulted in low engagement with the information resources. Furthermore, we offer some general lessons for program planners and researchers who are interested in applying novel reporting methods to encourage evidence uptake.
