The Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses was awarded the Peoples Choice Award and $15,000 towards mobile billboard advertisements for their ‘Ban Jumps Racing’ campaign. This grant funded the purchase of fortnightly advertising space on mobile billboards towed by two scooters for the first four months of the jumps racing season in South Australia and Victoria, the only two states who continue to allow jumps racing. This advertising drew attention to the animal welfare implications associated with hurdles races and steeplechases, calling on individuals to take direct action, or to get involve with the Coalitions campaign. The ads were supplemented by simultaneous political lobbying efforts by the Coalition. To view a copy of the billboard, please click on the download icon below.
