We have a winner!

March 6, 2013

The Canadian Labour Congress is pleased to announce that Michael Rouse is the first place winner  (Solidarity Video) of this year’s One Minute Message Video contest, taking home the $2000.00 prize. Second place (Thank the Unions Video) goes to David Padbury and is the winner of $1000.00. Also, congratulations are in order to Linda Banxachai, Frank Ferrao, and Tyler Pearce; the other 3 finalists who made it to the public voting round! Each of you has won $500.00.

The finalists were selected by our judges and then the public voted for their favourite videos. The objective was to come up with the best message and best video in just under a minute about how unions stand up for fairness, how unions deliver good jobs and better lives, how unions fight for a better deal for everyone. What does the “Union Advantage” mean for you, your family and your community?

We would like to thank all those who submitted videos to our One Minute Message Video Contest. This year in particular, we received a high calibre of submissions and will be using many of these to promote our ‘Fairness’ campaign. You can see the final 5 videos on our YouTube channel playlist here and a selection of some other interesting entries here.
