Stop-motion video contest for secondary school pupils "In Competition – Better More": 2018
The contest has ended. Period of the contest: 15 October – 16 November 2018. Awarding of participants took place on the World Competition Day on 5 December.
Fair competition is the driving force. It motivates to develop constantly and figure out new ways to become the best. If there is no competition, also this driving force is missing and development stops. This is exactly the case in business. Creation of innovations, growth, lower prices and wider diversity of goods is possible only when there are more than one player on the market. Despite the intensity of competition fight, one of business rules is clear - this fight has to be fair!
In the stop-motion* video contest "In Competition – Better More", organised by the Competition Council of Latvia (the CC), secondary school pupils were invited to explore benefits and advantages, which are obtained, when more than one player are involved in fair competition. The task of pupils: to create an original 45-second to 2-minute stop-motion video on the topic "In Competition – Better More". When submitting a video, a brief description of the author about the created video has to be attached.
The Competition Council is grateful to all participants and involved teachers of educational institutions for their contribution to the contest.
1st place: Dāvis Pavlovs from Eastern Latvia Technology High School
Dāvis about his video: "Competition is necessary to ensure, that the manufacturer thinks about the product price, quality, as well as functions, which would satisfy needs of consumers. A significant role is also played by innovations and technologies, which follow the course of time and increase demand, without changing the price significantly."
