Noise Pollution Team Competition 2009 – your chance to win £500

Cardiff Council’s Noise Pollution Team are pleased to announce details of a new competition to celebrate Noise Action Week 2009. Entrants are being asked to create a short film no longer than 40 seconds, to raise awareness of Cardiff Council’s out of hours noise service and to promote considerate neighbour behaviour. They are appealing to all students particularly students interested in film, media and art to enter the competition to be in with a chance of winning £500 to promote noise awareness in Cardiff.

‘Silence is golden’ was never truer if your neighbour forgets that you are sharing a wall/community; not everyone likes loud music/constant shouting or noise bellowing down the road.

But now there is a more effective way than banging on the wall or ceiling to ‘turn it down!’ Noise Enforcement Officers from Cardiff Council are on duty from 7 pm onwards from Wednesday to Sunday operating as late as 3am on the weekends. This new out of hours service means officers can respond to incidents such as noisy parties and noisy neighbours; in extreme cases they can seize noise equipment.

If you have a problem with noise pollution contact Pollution Control 029 2087 1650. Outside office hours contact 101 to access the out of hour’s noise service.

The competition is sponsored by ‘Keylet’ a specialised student accommodation letting agency and the winner will receive a cash prize of £500. The chosen film will be used to promote noise awareness in Cardiff providing an excellent opportunity to showcase the talent of its creator.

Please note that this competition is only open to non-professionals and the content will be copyright protected by Cardiff Council. To register your interest please contact Pollution Control on tel: 029 2087 1650 as soon as possible.

FINAL entries must be received by 4pm on Monday 30th November 2009.
