Wrong Way

Carlos Gonzales: “This is a project I did for my found footage class at UCSC (Fall 17′) against drunk driving using mass media related sources. Each year there are over 10,000 deaths related to drunk driving, which is nearly one-third of all related car crashes. Yet there are many people who drive drunk and avoid being a factor into these statistics. My hope is that this short film can shed light on the hard truth to someone who thinks “a few beers” or “not driving far” while under the influence of alcohol is dangerous and can be fatal.”

Young and Alcohol Free


Aiming to increase young people’s awareness of alcohol-related harm and encourage them to lead an alcohol-free lifestyle, the Department of Health (Hong Kong) launched the “Young and Alcohol Free” publicity campaign last year and the GIF design contest is one of the key initiatives of the campaign. Submissions were invited in March this year and nearly 200 animated GIF entries were received under two categories, namely the Family Category for local primary school students along with their parents, and the Secondary School Category for students from secondary schools. Prizes in each category, including the Best Animated GIF Award, the Most Popular Award and the Most Active Participating School Award, were presented at today’s ceremony.
