FUJIFILM PRESENTS

Students of Storytelling
A contest to help storytellers create and share their stories.
IT ALL BEGINS WITH AN IDEA...
WHAT’S YOURS?
We are passionate about stories and truly believe that the future of storytelling rests in the hands of today’s college students. This is why the Students of Storytelling contest will award up to $3,000 of FUJIFILM gear to a select group of winners to help bring their creative stories out into the light.

If you are currently an active college student in the US, enter our Students of Storytelling contest by submitting an idea for a story that can be depicted through images or video, and we could be the ones to help to bring your story to life!
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. Enter 04/01/20 through 05/31/20 by submitting a proposed “story” that can be told with images, video or both, as well as the required entry form found at StudentsOfStorytelling.com. “Story” submission may be in text, image or video format, or a combination of all three, but must meet criteria outlined in the Contest Rules. Must be aged 18 or over, and a current US college student to enter. A total of 30 contest winners will be selected from “story” submissions received, based upon judging criteria outlined in the Rules; each winner will receive up to $3,000 of FUJIFILM X Series or GFX system products and a dedicated hashtag for use in posting developed “story” content. Total ARV of prizes offered: USD $90,000. Story submission requirements and official Contest Rules here. Void where prohibited.

Timeline
Zach Krahmer
We met Zach Krahmer by chance, but it was as if it was meant to happen. His passion was palpable. His enthusiasm? Infectious. We felt his energy. We saw his drive. That’s honestly what made it so easy to say “Yes” to him when he came to us to ask about getting some FUJIFILM gear to document an adventure he was undertaking.

The plan was to hike the Pacific Crest Trail during his summer break. Alone. He’d been training and preparing himself for this trip for months. In a way, he was going on a trip of self-discovery; a journey of solitude, putting his Eagle Scout skills to the test as he hiked the trail over the course of three months. It turns out Zach was not only a skilled outdoorsman, but a noted emerging student photographer.

He checked in with us periodically during the trip, sharing the visual stories of what he was seeing, and truly illustrating what it was like to be on the trail. The images were nothing short of stunning and told a compelling story of nature, discovery, and the human condition. Zach’s journey inspired us to create Students of Storytelling, part of the next iteration of Fujifilm’s Create Forever movement.

Everyone has a story to tell and Students of Storytelling is our way of helping you tell yours. We gave Zach a camera and lens, and he told this story. What story will you tell?
