What is a locally reflective Project?

To be considered locally reflective, the project must reflect the community in which the Project Lead (applicant) currently resides. This means the story must reflect the culture, environment, people, events or history of that community.

In order to be classified as locally reflective, the project must meet the following criteria:

  • The Project Lead currently resides in the community, town or city from which they applied (the “participant’s community of residence”).
  • At least 80% of the filming and production of the project must take place in the participant’s community of residence.
  • The project is about people, topics or events that are relevant and connected to the participant's community of residence. 

Note: Please refer to the list of eligible communities for STORYHIVE 2021 Open Call. The Project Lead must be able to supply current proof of residency for the address listed on their application.
