Be inspired
Sometimes it’s necessary to lose yourself in another’s story before you can truly find yourself in your own.

A New Wave of Inspiration
Back in April 2020, we set out on a journey to discover the next generation of creators with the launch of our Students of Storytelling contest. We invited students from across the US to send us their big idea for a visual story and, if chosen, we would help them share it with the world. After reviewing countless entries and being astounded by the level of talent we encountered, we have selected five of the best to be featured in the second season of the Create Forever project.

So, take some time to explore their stories and find the inspiration to tell your own.
