It is over three years now since young teenager Donal Walsh sadly lost his battle to cancer. The impact of his powerful, positive message however continues to be spread nationally and internationally through the Live Life Foundation.
The fourth National Live Life Film Competition with the theme ‘Make Every Second Count’ is now accepting entries. The competition has three categories: primary school, secondary school and a third level for adults.
“This year, the Live Life Foundation is delighted to welcome Chapter 23 – Kerry and Limerick Credit Unions on board as sponsors of the prize money for the overall winning film from each category,” said Mary Lucey, National Film Competition coordinator.
“The competition is very proud that the Credit Unions recognise the positive impact the competition has and can have on all ages,” she said.
An awards ceremony will be held on Thursday, February, 16th 2017 in the Brandon Hotel, Tralee where the top three ranked films in each category will be screened.
Prizes will be awarded and all will celebrate living life to the full with some well-known TV and sports celebrities.
“The credit unions in Kerry and West Limerick are very happy to support the Live Life Foundation and the National Film Competition,” said John Long, chairman Chapter 23 Credit Unions.
“We hope that the Live Life empowering message will resonate loudly with its target audience. Credit Unions have always been supportive of youth related activities and the financial support for this competition is a testament to this commitment,” said Mr. Long.
The winning films will also be screened at the Dingle International Film Festival along with Kerry Film Festival and First Cut! Film Festival in 2017 and at the Cork Film Festival 2017.
