Breaking Barriers Short Video Challenge


Welcome to the Breaking Barriers short video competition! The competition commences on May 1, 2023 and ends on May 31, 2023.

The competition theme, Breaking Barriers, refers to the act of overcoming obstacles or limitations that prevent progress or success in various aspects of life. These barriers can be physical, emotional, social, cultural or economic in nature, and breaking them requires determination, resilience and creativity.

Breaking barriers often involves pushing beyond one’s comfort zone to achieve goals and aspirations. This can be done through education, innovation or simply through personal growth and self-improvement. Ultimately, breaking barriers is about expanding possibilities and creating opportunities for oneself and others.

So, get creative and start filming! We can’t wait to see your interpretation of the theme Breaking Barriers in just 30 seconds.
