Image Makers

The Image Makers Program is WIFV’s community outreach initiative for metro area high school students. It was created in 1997 to teach local youth about film and video production, while also helping deserving nonprofit organizations. Image Makers participants learn how to research, write, produce, direct and edit a 30-second public service announcement (PSA) for broadcast distribution. These PSAs are made for up to three deserving nonprofit organizations each year.

Deadline Extended: Applications for the 2015 Image Makers program are due by Thursday, March 5, 2015. The first session starts Saturday, March 14.
