TiLT Challenge! - Film/Media Competition on Disability
TiLT asks young artists and media makers (ages 13-22) to share their experiences with disability—in their own lives or in the lives of others—in an effort to shift, or tilt, society's perceptions of people with disabilities. Basically, to use their art form and storytelling capacity to re-frame the way people think about disability through evocative, honest stories.
Submission deadline is May 15, 2015

Questions: firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 416-8898
TiLT is a program of the Kennedy Center, Office of VSA and Accessibility
Creative minds. Storytellers. Game changers.
This is your mission. The Kennedy Center asks you to bring honesty to the table. To shift perception through media, video, and creative storytelling. To showcase that people are people first—not simply defined by a disability. This is the TILT challenge.
We ask you to share your disability experience—in your own life, the lives of others, or by creating fictional characters—through the art of digital media and storytelling. We seek authentic stories that will inform, enlighten and tilt this perception.
The TiLT Challenge invites middle school, high school, and pre-professional students, ages 13-22, from around the world to submit. Submissions must be no more than 5 minutes in length and are due May 15, 2015. Winners will be invited to Washington, D.C., and winning submissions will be showcased at the Kennedy Center the week of July 20-26, 2015.
Please share with young film and media makers!
