Creative Competition 2016/17

Scotland For All

 

Show Racism the Red Card is celebrating the 13th year of the anti-racism/anti-sectarianism creative competition.

The competition is your opportunity to make a stand against racism and/or sectarianism. 2016 has been an exciting year at Show Racism the Red Card marking the 20th Anniversary of the charity in the UK. After so many years working to combat racism we are looking for young people to come up with an entry for our competition that celebrates a Scotland For All.

We know from working with young people that Scotland is a welcoming and accepting place to live and work and we want you to get this message across through a creative competition entry.

With the theme in mind (Scotland for All) we would like you to develop a piece of creative work that get across clear messages of anti-racism or anti-sectarianism and celebrates diversity in Scotland’s communities.

 It could be:

·            Artwork

·            Poetry

·            Short Story

·            Creative writing

·            Music

·            Dance/Drama performance

·            Research project

·            Multimedia presentation

 

In fact it could be anything that is creative, inspirational and stimulated by an anti-racism or anti-sectarianism message.

Entries are welcome from both individuals and groups. Finalists will be invited to a star-studded awards ceremony at Scotland’s National Stadium, Hampden Park to receive public acclaim for their work and receive superb prizes.

The closing date for entries is Tuesday 31st January 2017

This is a great opportunity to work with Show Racism the Red Card to show that young people are serious about making Scotland a fair and inclusive society – we hope that you will be part of it.

“I believe that to eradicate racism from society we have to educate people from a young age and that’s why I am delighted to be ambassador for SRtRC Scotlands ‘Creative Competition’ for a third year.

The competition gives schools and colleges the opportunity to have fun and be creative whilst learning and spreading a strong message ‘Show Racism the Red Card’. After the quality and understanding I have seen over the last two years I am looking forward to seeing all your great work again this year.” – Liam Craig, Competition Ambassador and St Johnstone FC player
