Two different submission categories continue to be offered for the festival’s 12th Edition. The ‘OPEN’ category accepts work on all topics and issues, and the ‘THE IMPACT PROJECT’ seeks stories on individuals, groups, or small organizations working to make a difference.
As the landscape of storytelling has been continually evolving in this digital age, the festival is also now open to receiving multimedia submissions for all categories.
“When the right balance between photography, video and audio is found, the strength of the testimony can be further revealed in a more spirited way,” Programme Coordinator Françoise Callier said.
