Road Safety Wales launches annual drink/drug drive competition
Road Safety Wales is inviting youth organisations, schools and colleges to enter an annual competition to help promote the anti-drink/drug driving message.
Through the 2015 All Wales Multimedia Competition, entrants are encouraged to devise, perform and record a live action multimedia presentation that will warn people of the dangers and consequences of driving under the influence of drink and/or drugs.
Each presentation should be no more than three minutes in length with a maximum of six performers. Team members must be aged between 11 and 25 years. Entries should be accompanied by a description of how the team intends to use their entry to raise awareness of drink/drug driving issues in their locality.
With the introduction earlier this year of a new law relating to drug driving, Road Safety Wales is keen to attract entries with an anti-drug driving theme.
Last year’s winning videos were used by the police and other partners in Road Safety Wales.
The winning entry for the Dyfed Powys Police region was ‘Pie-Eyed Pilgrimage’, created by Gwilym Short and Morgan Jones, while the winning entry from the North Wales Police region, ‘You Booze, You Cruise’, was created by pupils from Coleg Cambria in Wrexham.
Tom Parsons from Coleg Gwent at Blaenau Gwent Learning Zone created the winning entry for the Gwent Police Force region, while the winning entry for the South Wales Police region was ‘Truth or Dare’ by Spark Blaenymaes Youth Project from Swansea.
The winning entry from each local authority area is put forward for a regional competition with a £500 prize for each of the four regional winners who will receive their prizes at the All Wales Anti Drink/Drug Drive Campaign launch on 25 November.
