YDA X SPARKNEWS

The YDA and Sparknews are delighted to announce they are joining forces in the move to promote positive innovation around the world.

YDA recently launched a vital new category – ‘Changing the World Frame By Frame‘. This brand new category aims to highlight innovative and positive action undertaken in the social environment field.

YDA, in their ambition to go further, has formed a partnership with the media organization, Sparknews, founded by Christian de Boisredon.

Sparknews is a key international player on the social impact scene, actively bringing together media leaders and the people behind these very important local innovative projects. Sparknews’ primary mission is to bring to light and share these inspiring and innovative solutions – thereby helping to spark action for change through –

 

– An attractive video share platform.

– ‘Impact Journalism Day’ – an international event uniting 70 leading newspapers from 50 countries worldwide.

 

With this exciting new partner, YDA will perfectly augment the Spakknews media offer by adding its quality and audiovisual expertise. YDA will also be working to offer young directors around the world, the possibility of discovering a local story or even if you wish – an international innovation story, capturing it on film and bringing it to a worldwide audience on Sparknews’ collaborative video platform service, as well as on our YDA website.

We call on ad agencies and brands to join us, tell us their stories and meet the young filmmakers.

And so, we at YDA, are there to put you directly in contact with these directors, actors or brands – those inspired people searching for solutions in your own neighborhood or across the seas…

Match your talent with theirs and make something important happen. Show the world what you can do !
