ATA wants videos celebrating truck drivers
Aug 16, 2011 11:35 AM
The American Trucking Associations will sponsor for the third year a video contest for National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (NTDAW). This contest aims to celebrate the 3.2 million professional truck drivers delivering life’s essentials across the United States daily.
ATA is seeking amateur video submissions from professional truck drivers, drivers’ families, shippers, suppliers, allied companies, or community members explaining why professional truck drivers are essential. Entries can be produced with simple cell phone, flip video, or home video cameras—with the emphasis on creativity and message, rather than production values.
NTDAW 2011 will take place September 11–17. The deadline for contest submissions is Sept 21, 2011, allowing entries to be produced during the week’s festivities.
Submissions should be posted to YouTube, tagged with “ATATrucksBringIt” and the URL e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, entries can be sent to email@example.com or American Trucking Associations, ATA Image and Outreach, 950 N Glebe Rd, Suite 210, Arlington VA 22203.
