Chance To Star For Professional US Freight Truck Drivers

Film Yourself and Appear on the ATA Website
Shipping News Feature

US – The American Trucking Associations (ATA) advise us that, for the third year, it will sponsor a video contest designed to illustrate and celebrate the lives of professional freight truck drivers and explain why they are so essential to our society. The ATA is seeking amateur video submissions from professional truck drivers, driver’s families, shippers, suppliers, allied companies or community members, with the emphasis on creativity and message, rather than production values and using simple cell phone, flip video or home video camera technology with a deadline on submissions of 21st September.

Available entries will be produced during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (NTDAW) which this year takes place from the 11th to the 17th September. Submissions should be posted to YouTube tagged with “ATATrucksBringIt” and the URL emailed to ntdaw@trucking.org. Alternatively, entries can be sent to the email address or the American Trucking Associations, ATA Image and Outreach, 950 N. Glebe Rd, Suite 210, Arlington, VA 22203.
