A Glimpse of The Future, With Inspiring Stories

Sehar, Michelle & Inspiring Stories' Guy Ryan
I love Inspiring Stories and its Making a Difference film competition.

Making a Difference challenges aspiring Kiwi filmmakers to tell the story of a young person who’s doing something extraordinary.  It embraces difference of many kinds. (2016 entries open NOW!)

Inspiring Stories on Facebook & on Twitter

This year's Making a Difference winners have just been announced and just look! It's obvious that the competition engages young women and they do well. A lesson for competitions-in-general and for film organisations, as is that other young people's competition, The Outlook For Someday(Their results coming soon!)

Warm congratulations to all the winners. The future's here, right now. And it's looking good!
