(28/07/08) – A competition seeking personal narratives is accepting entries on video, photography and essay formats. Say the organisers of First Person Impressions: "Each day countless stories unfold. Take a real life experience of your own and tell it in a way that only you can. Craft your story with words, photos or video. Make the ordinary magical, or the exotic familiar. Shock us, amaze us or make us pause to reflect. The only rule is that it’s real."

All entries must be new works that have not previously been published, exhibited or screened in the US. Films should run for up to five minutes, phographers can submit up to five images and essays should have no more than 1,500 words. A $10 dollar fee is charged and awards of up to $500 will be given to the winners.
