Labour Video of the Year

To see the 2010 results and entries click here

For 2011, your challenge is to make a short advert for the TUC that encourages people to get involved and join a trade union. In the current climate, people need trade unions more than ever and this is your opportunity to show people why.
Your ad should be aimed at those who have little or no knowledge of trade unions. The ad should display a positive message that encourages people to either join or to get involved with trade unions.
Once you’ve made your ad, complete the online form and send it to us. We’ll then put it up on our website. Your ad will be voted for by the public, before hopefully being short listed and presented to a panel of experienced judges.
LabourStart's 2010 international competition also attracted some brilliant entries of short union videos, watch them…
