Take up the TUC challenge to make a short advert about trade unions and win a prize, check out the website for more information: www.tuc60seconds.org.uk
Your challenge is to make an ad for the TUC that encourages people to join a trade union. In the current climate, people need trade unions more than ever before and this is your chance to show people why.
We want you to make an ad that entertains, one that you’re proud to share, one that people want to forward on to social networking sites like facebook.
You can be as mainstream or as quirky as you like. We are not looking for the next Steven Speilberg blockbuster, just a great idea well presented.
So what are you waiting for?
Now’s the time to get cracking and come up with that great idea, so, check out the brief, listen to the experts, and find out how to get involved. Log on to www.tuc60seconds.org.uk for all you need to know, as well as details about the workshops we will be running to help get you started.
Closing Date: Midnight, GMT, 9th August 2010.
