Project Description

Share with us a story in either writen, audio or video format based on the basic story structure:

  • Context - Answer these vital questions - When and where is the story taking place? Who is involved in the story and what are they after?
  • Action - Outline the main decisions, actions, conflicts and challenges that the main character/s had to face and bring them to life through descriptive language, vocal variety and body language.
  • Results - Resolve the conflict of the story and tell us the main lessons drawn from this event.

The story can be true or fictional. What matters is that it offers emotional value and a provoking message.
