All staff and learners from Talk training are invited to take part in ACT’s ‘Proud to be Welsh’ Competition. Combine your passion for being Welsh and your creative skills for the opportunity to win one of many fantastic prizes.

The categories are as follows:

Photography – Take a photo of something or someone that sums up Wales in just one image.

Creative Writing – Fancy yourself as the next Dylan Thomas? Write a short story, poem, pen portrait of a famous person or even a joke. Your written entry can be in either Welsh or English.

Welsh Bake Off* – Like cakes? Love cooking? Combine both and make a Welsh themed cake! You can use all Welsh ingredients or make a decorative cake which captures the country you live in.

Performance – Always wanted to go on Britain’s Got Talent?! Be creative and film yourself singing a song, performing a scene from a play, rapping or dancing and enter it into the Performance category. Performances can take place in Welsh or English.

Vocational Skills – Create something inspired by Wales using the amazing skills you have learned via your route. How about a Wales themed hair design? A handmade item that you’ve constructed yourself like a wooden dragon? Or what about spray painting a car with a Wales inspired motif (with permission of course!)? Whatever you decide, track the progress from beginning to end by taking photographs of the process and the final product.

Entries for all categories (except Welsh Bake Off) must be sent via email to along with your name, telephone number, training provider and name of your tutor/assessor. If you are a member of staff please send through your job title.
