How to participate in future rounds

We are always looking for new tellers and new languages.
Do you have a favourite story which fits one of our themes?

Check our calendar for dates and themes.

 

Submission procedure

  1. Download our video guidelines and our Letter of Engagement.  For further recording support, check this video on Richard’s extensive page.
  2. Record in HD quality (1920×1080). DO NOT RECORD IN 4K – the file is too large.
  3. Use WeTransfer to send a sample video (30 sec.) of your story for the round to our mail address.
  4. Mail:
      • the completed and signed Letter of Engagement
      • a short “teaser” text about your story (max. 50 words – here is an example)
      • a short bio (for an example, scroll down this linked page to Meet the storyteller)
      • a head-and-shoulders photo (600 px)

Please respect the deadlines for each round.

If your performance has been selected, we will contact you in time for you to record the whole story.

And of course, share Storyflix, and feel free to invite your fellow storytellers.
