Submissions are now open for the Actuality Media’s Scholarship Competition and a chance to win a study abroad opportunity of a lifetime with international service-learning organization, Actuality Media.
After the success of last year’s competition, the company is giving aspiring filmmakers another chance to win an Actuality Media Documentary Outreach – this year in India, Cambodia, Guatemala or Zambia worth up to $3,500.
Actuality is searching for aspiring filmmakers to introduce a 3-5 minute short documentary on a local changemaker making a sustainable impact on chronic social and environmental problems and submit their entry before 1 March, 2018.
The grand prize is a 100% scholarship for a 2018 Actuality Media Documentary Outreach program in India, Cambodia, Guatemala or Zambia. Actuality Media takes students and emerging filmmakers around the world to study the art and practice of filmmaking while producing short documentaries on individuals and organizations providing innovative solutions to developing communities.
Program Director Robin Canfield said last year’s scholarship competition provided an invaluable platform for changemakers to showcase their work to a local and global audience.
“It was inspiring to learn about many organizations around the world doing great things in their community as a result of our first scholarship competition last year,” Mr. Canfield said. “So many changemakers saw their organization featured in a short film that they can leverage for self-promotion, and I can’t wait to see what powerful stories this year’s featured changemakers will get to share about themselves.”
