The American Trucking Associations is seeking amateur video submissions from professional truck drivers, driver’s families, shippers, suppliers, allied companies or community members explaining why professional truck drivers are essential. Submissions will be entered into a video contest for National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (NTDAW) that celebrates the 3.2 million professional truck drivers.
ATA 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 September 21, 2011, allowing entries to be produced during NTDAW festivities.
Submissions should be posted to YouTube, tagged with “ATATrucksBringIt” and the URL emailed 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.
