BeStillMedia March-April 2022 Contest now is over!
Be Still Media is a nonprofit organization that was created during the lockdown, to incentivize content for creatives and culture through bi-monthly competitions throughout the calendar year.
Be Still Media Contest mission is to champion creators of media and arts for works that search the mind and spark the imagination, inviting us to understand what we value and how that affects the way we live.
This mission is being launched while the world is at once still, in the lockdown of the coronavirus. This contests are held bi-monthly all year long. There are endless discoveries of gratitude and hope happening in a captive world. Images and words that are generously other-focused can be powerful forces in shaping our thinking and in transforming our priorities. We will promote incentive competitions that draw on ideas of character and the meaning of life.
