Labour rights article written on the 01 Apr 2011

Have you seen a film that has inspired you to support labour rights?

LabourStart has announced that its second Labour Video of the Year competition is now open for nominations. Nominated films must focus on work, workers or workers’ issues, be no longer than three minutes and uploaded on to YouTube.

Not a film maker yourself? Don’t let that stop you! You don’t have to be the owner or producer of a video to make a nomination.

After nominations close, an international panel of judges will select a short list of finalists. Popular voting will then take place over two weeks in May and will decide the winning film.

Submit your nomination today

Last year’s competition received an outstanding response of more than 200 submissions. You can view the 2010 finalist films via the following links:
