Show Racism the Red Card Wales is an anti-racism charity. The aim of our campaign is to produce anti-racism educational resources and to educate young people and adults by delivering educational workshops in schools and other venues throughout Wales.
The workshops aim to raise awareness amongst young people of the current issues surrounding racism in society. As sport has a tremendous influence on young people, Show Racism the Red Card Wales use it as a tool to engage with them to tackle racism. Our Creative Competition in Wales is an extremely useful way of encouraging young peoples’ interest in anti-racism and provides an opportunity for pupils to express their feelings about racism and showcase their work.
Last year saw over 7,000 pupils of different ages taking part in the competition, with the most final entries we have ever had of anti-racism themed artwork being submitted to our judging day.
The Awards Ceremony took place at the Marriott Hotel in Cardiff and all the lucky winners from across Wales attended a formal lunch before receiving their awards. Prizes included kindles, Amazon vouchers, trophies, a SRtRC goody bag and a framed certificate. Guests were also treated to some fantastic entertainment including a circus workshop and dance performance.
The overall winner was Tahmina Uddin from Newport, who has been a category winner in previous years. The judges felt that the quality and message of her artwork was creative and inspiring.
Please take the time to read the category briefs and ensure any artwork is submitted with an entry label by 9th March 2018.
