  •        ‘Beocht na Gaeilge sa Lá atá Inniu ann/Vibrancy of the Irish Language in this Day and Age’  is the theme of the ad
  •         No longer than 20 seconds
  •         Bilingual or in Irish only
  •         Suitable to be shared on social media
  •         Suitable to be televised
  •         We are looking for a creative, smart and visually appealing advert that will grab the audience’s attention and show the modern side of Bliain na Gaeilge and the Irish language

What is Bliain na Gaeilge?

Bliain na Gaeilge 2018 is a celebration of 125 years since the beginning of the revival of the Irish language with the founding of Conradh na Gaeilge. As well as recognising the progress and advancement of Gaeilge and Gaeltacht organisations since then, Bliain na Gaeilge will also provide thousands of opportunities to use the language. 2018 is the time to seize these opportunities and to use Gaeilge where you can. Take part in local and national events, new competitions and projects which will run throughout the year, and let’s celebrate our national tongue together.
