One of the few competition stipulations is that young people must have worked with SRtRC resources and activities within an educational setting, and having done so entrants then have the flexibility to get creative with their anti-racism messages.
Open to young people of all ages, the free-to-enter competition encourages participants to produce anti-racism themed artwork in any medium; creative writing – including poetry, short stories and newspaper style articles; film and music pieces.
The competiton is sponsored annually by the National Union of Teachers, UNISON, Unite the Union, GMB, The Professional Footballers Association (PFA), The Football Association (FA), Potts Print (UK) and Durham County Council.
Throughout its history, entrants into the competition have produced truly inspirational work, some of which has gone on to be incorporated into the campaign’s wider awareness-raising activities.
