“Filmmaking is all about appreciating the talents of the people you surround yourself with, and knowing you could never have made any of these films by yourself.”
GLA’s YouTube Video Contest
We had so many incredible video submissions this year – more than ever before – and we were impressed with the dedication of each and every filmmaker who submitted a video. We’re proud to announce the winner and runner up of our 2018 video contest below!
Winner | Elise Constanty – Thailand: In & Beyond the Classroom
Runner-Up | Maeve Corcoran – Ghana: Children of Africa
We’d like to extend a huge thank you to everyone else who submitted a video this year for the contest. Each and every video entry from across the globe was truly inspiring, and we had a very difficult time picking from such a good crop of videos. Be sure to keep on making your art and sharing it with others!
GLA’s Instagram Photo Contest
This year, we had students tag their Instagram photo entries with the hashtag #GLAphotocontest, and boy were there a ton of great submissions! These remarkable images share a moment, a memory, and sometimes even a feeling, and we’re excited to announce these three students as the winners of our 2018 Instagram photo contest!
