THE CHALLENGE
What are you passionate about? What gets your goat? What does the mainstream media miss? What's your perspective?

Make a film on your mobile phone on a topic you care about or a subject you want to investigate. Whether you want to highlight an issue, give someone else a voice or tell a story that's personal to you, this is your chance to say it in your way.
