The deadline for Mayo students to enter the DARE2BDRINKAWARE.ie creative competition has been extended to Monday December 16.
The competition began in 2007 with a focus on short films, and Mayo teams have featured heavily in the shortlisted and prize-winning entries down through the years.
For the December 16 deadline, students from Mayo – and throughout Ireland - are invited to submit their ideas for creative campaigns. Entrants who make it through to the second round will then receive funding to implement their campaign, and will get mentoring from industry experts, as well as a ‘celebrity champion’ who will support their team and attend events in their college. Once all campaigns have been implemented, there will be a final gala showcase event. At this event, the shortlisted teams from round two will have to pitch to a panel of high-profile judges, outlining the impact and success of their campaign. The overall winners will then be chosen live at the event. The winning team will receive prize-money of €3,000, while the next two best-placed teams will receive prizes of €2,000 and €1,000.
