THEME: LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE.
In times of darkness and in times of joy, shine the light that is hope.
For this year’s film comp, we want you to show us what shining your light looks like at Festival. Capture the moments where you see light shining no matter the circumstances. Film your friends and family, role play if you need, or capture people off guard in random acts of kindness that show there is hope.

Remember, your profile must be on public for us to see your videos and there are some awesome prizes up for grabs. Entries close 3pm Sunday 26th January
THEME: HOPE AND A FUTURE
Jeremiah 29:11 says “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
What does hope look like when you fully give your life into God’s hands? Does your heart flutter knowing the worry is eliminated? Or do you live your life more cautiously, so you don’t have to give over control? However, you feel, when you think about the future, the future remains in his hands and his hands alone. All we can do is hope.
This Festival show how hope leads to your future. Think outside the box and capture those moments! There are some awesome prizes up for grabs. Simply snap a picture over the weekend and upload it to Instagram with the #F1PhotoComp2020 and with #Under16 or #Over16 so we know which category you’re entering. Also remember, your account needs to be on public for us to see your picture. Entries close 3pm Sunday 26th January.
