KIND Snacks calls on creatives to share perspectives
December 15, 2017
An emotional film or photo can be a powerful symbol of important issues that exist but are often overlooked. As tensions heighten across the nation, today KIND unveils an initiative that promotes unity and challenges a universally-held belief by suggesting that being nice is not enough.
As part of the announcement, KIND is inviting people to submit a written essay, photo or video to kindsnacks.com/morekind that highlights the difference between nice and kind. In the brand’s eyes:
· Nice doesn’t add to problems. KIND solves them.
· Nice is something you say. KIND is something you do.
· Nice is polite but not always what we need to hear. KIND is honest and stands its ground.
A distinguished panel of six judges, made up of entrepreneurs and creatives such as Joel Fields, Showrunner and Executive Producer of The Americans, and David Islay, Founder of StoryCorps, will select three winners. Those selected will receive $25,000 to donate to a charity of their choice along with resources to help fund their next creative project.
In conjunction with the contest, KIND has also released a video series; the first video titled “More Than Nice,” produced by three-time Academy Award winning cinematographer, Emmanuel Lubezki, of Birdman, Gravity and The Revenant, visually captures Emmanuel’s personal interpretation of the nice versus kind juxtaposition.
I thought the above news would be relevant to your students as they consider the importance of storytelling with purpose and hope they’ll submit to the contest. Please let me know if you have any questions or interest in chatting more. For more information, feel free to visit kindsnacks.com/morekind.
