Hot on the heels of last year’s popular “Mission Is . . .” film contest, the Office of Adventist Mission at the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists announces the 2018 film contest titled “My Story, My Mission.” Students around the world are invited to creatively express, in one minute or less, what mission means in their lives.

The contest is for students 18-25 years old who self-identify as Adventist or who attend Adventist-affiliated educational institutions. To ensure eligibility, entrants are asked to refer to the entry rules. Films must be submitted online by August 31, 2018.

The contest was officially launched in April at the Sonscreen Film Festival in Columbia, Maryland. A panel of judges will select a shortlist in September which will then be placed on the Adventist Mission website and social media for public voting.

The winners will be announced in October at the Society of Adventist Communicators Conference (also in Columbia). The first place winner can look forward to honing his or her filmmaking skills by accompanying Adventist Mission/Mission Spotlight® filmmakers on an all-expense-paid mission film trip to an international location. This year’s second prize is a choice of either the GoPro HERO6 or DJI Spark Drone. The third prize is the DJI Osmo Mobile Gimbal Stabilizer, and the Judges’ Choice prize is the Ricoh Theta SC Spherical camera
