Videos For Change – Could your video make a difference?
The Challenge with A Cause
Girl Guides is about making a difference and here’s an opportunity for girls currently in Years 7 to 12 to raise awareness about a social issue they feel passionate about.
Videos for Change challenge young people from Years 7 to 12 in Australia to create a one-minute video on a social issue they feel passionate about. Past participants have covered issues such as social inclusion, racism, domestic violence, gender equality, LGBTQI rights, and bullying. For inspiration check out the winning videos from 2018 HERE
Videos for Change is not a traditional film competition, it’s a challenge with a cause. You can speak up for something you would like to change in your world or speak up for someone who can’t speak. The competition was created in 2015 to help students to take action and feel empowered to create change in the world. This year’s Videos for Change Festival will take place on 26 November 2019 at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney.
