Reading Time: 2 minutes

This year marks 200 years of sharing the Bible in Australia and to celebrate Bible Society Australia is inviting you to help showcase the impact the Bible has had on Australians from all walks of life.

The 200 Stories Project is an opportunity for budding and seasoned short-film makers to share creative stories of transformation, life and light — you just need to incorporate an Australian communicating a verse from the Bible.


Transformation | Life | Light


Short Story — 20 seconds max.; an Australian communicating a Bible verse

Long Story — 170 seconds max.; an Australian communicating a Bible verse; and the accompanying story of transformation, hope and life.
