Community Documentary Competition!

15 Feb 2017 - 11:15


Actuality Media invites students around the world to produce a 3-5 minute short film on a local person or organisation making a sustainable impact on chronic social or environmental problems.

The grand prize? A 100% scholarship towards a 2017 Actuality Media Documentary Outreach in Peru, Nepal, Nicaragua or Morocco to study the art and practice of filmmaking while telling stories about solutions that improve our world!

The competition is an invaluable opportunity for students to win the study abroad experience of a lifetime. "We believe everyone has it in them to tell a good story, and I'm excited to see the fantastic, community-supporting films that are made for this competition," says Program Director Robin Canfield. "We look forward to having the winning filmmaker join us on a Documentary Outreach this year so we can help them hone their storytelling skills."

The competition is also fantastic platform for changemakers to communicate their cause to a local and global audience. "Every community has changemakers with stories worth telling, and this contest is a great way to raise awareness. Sometimes what a changemaker really needs is to have more people know about them and what they do. This competition is the perfect platform to address that issue".

The competition begins 12 February 2017, with final submissions accepted no later than 15 March, 2017.
