Show Racism the Red Card is celebrating the 15th year of the anti-racism creative competition.
The competition is your opportunity to make a stand against racism. Scotland’s young people are incredibly creative and this competition is their chance to have their voices heard when speaking out against racism.
Racism is on the rise and it is important that we challenge negative attitudes through the power of creativity.
The theme for this years competition is: Inspirational people from the anti-racism movement.
15th January 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Martin Luther King, he is just one of many inspirational people who have championed the cause of anti-racism.
With the theme in mind we would like you to develop a piece of creative work that get across clear messages of anti-racism.
It could be:
· Short Story
· Creative writing
· Dance/Drama performance
· Research project
· Multimedia presentation
In fact it could be anything that is creative, inspirational and stimulated by an anti-racism message.
Entries are welcome from both individuals and groups. Finalists will be invited to a star-studded awards ceremony in January to receive public acclaim for their work and receive their award prizes.
The closing date for entries is Thursday 31st January 2019.
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.
