Nespresso Talents 2018 "The Difference She Makes"


This year, Nespresso Talents want you to share the stories of women who make a difference in their 2018 contest. The theme this year is “The Difference She Makes.”

Join them in casting a light on their achievements, the small ordinary ones and the big extraordinary ones. We’re after inspiring stories, made by women and men, which celebrate the strength, the talent and the innovation of the women who spark change.

This contest highlights the stories of all women, the ordinary, the extraordinary and the billions that are both. Tell their stories. Join them in recognising their achievements, their talents and their vision. Shine a light on the changes they have made, however big or small.

Your story can take place in your home, in your neighbourhood, or in your classroom. It can feature your friends, family, or complete strangers. It can be a documentary, or a fictional world of your own creation. It can be animated or filmed. All genres are welcome in the form of fiction, documentary, animation or clip video.

The only rule is that it must be shot in 9:16.

In this mobile world, more and more people are watching vertical video, so challenge yourself with this new format and see what you can create. Vertical doesn’t just mean turning your camera on its side. People now see the world through a vertical frame and all visual arts have to adapt to this reality. Vertical brings a new emphasis on the truly relevant and immediate in content, whether useful or emotional. It is a new kind of up-close-and-personal intimacy via people’s private interface to whatever and whoever is closest and most important to them. And the small screen suits close-up work very well.
