ChangeSMARTPHONE DOCUMENTARY COMPETITION: Stroud Community TV have been contacted by students running this new prestigious competition. Eye Want Change hopes to encourage others to think creatively about societal issues that interest them. Films must be shot on a smartphone or tablet, and relate to a social matter – one that influences society yet is opposed by a considerable number of individuals within it. They write: “The #selfie generation is often given a bad name. We call on you to reclaim the mobile phone through an exploration of how it can be used, and consider the ways in which new technologies have the potential to democratise the mainstream media.” Entrants must be aged 16-25 and are invited to produce a film up to ten minutes long. These short films should then be sent to our team, who will upload them onto this website. In keeping with the mission of Eye Want Change, the competition will be greatly enhanced by your online engagement with it: Films will be upvoted by the general public. Following this, the ten films that receive the most votes will be reviewed by our panel of judges and prizes will be announced accordingly. See more at:

photoSOCIAL REPORTING COURSES: ‘You’re Welcome Social Reporter’. You’re Welcome writes: “This workshop explores what being a You’re Welcome Social Reporter is all about. We will look at how you can develop your skills for using the internet to support people in your community to tell their story, whether that’s helping them with a blog or showing them how to upload a video onto a website. We will also explore how, as a Social Reporter, you can use the You’re Welcome website to its full potential.” See:
