Monroe Drive Safe Video Competition

Monroe has been keeping drivers safe on the road for 100 years. Now, we invite YOU to show us how YOU would educate people about driver and road safety. What does DRIVE SAFE mean to you? How would you explain it to other people?

We want you to create a short video with the theme DRIVE SAFE. Use your creative skills to show how you would inform and educate drivers to drive more safely. The video can be in any style you like – live action, animated, infographic, dramatic, funny, documentary style – the choice is yours. It just needs to get its message across in 30 seconds or less.

Open to everyone in Australia and New Zealand

Doing media studies at high school? Studying filmmaking at uni? Working as a creative professional? Great! But you don’t need to be studying or working in the area of graphic design, motion graphics, film, advertising or associated industries to enter. You just need to creatively interpret what DRIVE SAFE means to YOU. What do you think it means to DRIVE SAFE?

Simple rules

  • Create a video that focuses on the theme DRIVE SAFE.
  • Videos should be no more than 30 seconds in total duration. Your video can be as short as 10 seconds if you feel it creatively and successfully communicates DRIVE SAFE.
  • Videos must be able to be uploaded to YouTube, so they must comply with YouTube’s content guidelines.
  • Videos must be original and not use copyrighted video or audio material from other sources.
  • Entry is open to anyone resident in Australia or New Zealand regardless of age or experience.
  • Entrants under the age of 16 must have the permission of a parent or guardian.
