From the TUC

The TUC 60 Second Ad contest is back…..

07 Jun 2010, By

It’s been a year since the last contest…and we’re back again…read on to find out more….

Take up the TUC challenge to make a short advert about trade unions and win a prize.

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 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.

Win Fantastic Prizes

Win a fabulous £1000 cash prize plus a day on a film set, as well as tickets to the Premiere of ‘Made in Dagenham’ (in cinemas from October 1st) starring Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins, Miranda Richardson and Rosamund Pike. There will be the added bonus of watching your winning ad at a special screening of the film. There are some great prizes for the runners up too.

And please don’t worry, if needed, we’ll work with you to bring your ad up to broadcast quality.

The ad will also be seen by thousands of people across the world… including showings at the Geneva Labour film festival and the Washington DC Labour film festival.
