TUC 60 Second Advert Challenge – two weeks left to send in your entries

03 Aug 2009, By

The 60 second advert challenge has picked up a pace. We have a number of entries and the workshops with Harry and Herring advertising agency were well attended with some great ideas coming back and forth. One of the attendees had had 12 t-shirts made especially to make her ad, so we are all certainly looking forward to receiving that entry.

A final reminder to those who are making adverts for the TUC 60 second advert contest, there are just two weeks left to send in your entries.

This is an exciting competition. For those people who don’t know the challenge is to make a 60 second advert about trade unions for youtube. The competition is open to everyone and there are some great prizes to be won. The winning entry will be shown at TUC congress.

It’s up to people what techniques they use, they can be as mainstream or quirky as people like. Closing date GMT Midnight, 17 August 2009.
