UDecided to give us the winning vote and secure the West End Young Digital Artists funding to get cartoon crazy this year!
You all got onboard and online to vote for Success4All to win £500 funding for a new, creative project designing cartoons. However there is a more deadly side to the project, warning the local community of the dangers of loan sharks.
This is the first step in the UDecide project that aims to raise young people’s awareness of social issues that could give them a nasty bite!
With everyone’s help our online votes and votes in person stormed the nominations meaning that WEYDA are now on the road to an exciting journey of their own, working with UDecide on fun yet important projects.
In true WEYDA style, they have already come up with ideas for an imaginative cartoon that includes references to members of the local community as a basis of their loan shark plot…. who will be playing Jaws?

WEYDA’s previous projects have proved their capabilities for getting involved in community projects that bring our true heroes to the forefront. Their commitment, enthusiasm and skills in projects such as West End Heroes prove why they are the worthy winners of this opportunity http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dabzoW-qqo .

A big THANK YOU to all our online voters and our army of voters who turned up to the event to vote in person. We really felt your support, out numbering the other organisations by 5 to 1! Great Effort!
