The challenge: A movie about a Wallingford person, place or thing that includes the challenge line and image.

YOUR MOVIE MUST INCLUDE the challenge line and image described on this page.
In addition to story and technique criteria, the judges give points for creative use of the challenge line and image. This helps us know you made the movie for this challenge. It gives us something more to help identify the winner(s). There can be multiple winners IF we have several movie-makers in a few age categories. Tell your friends about it.

Challenge Image:  

For this challenge, your movie needs to include Spring Flowers.

      • This can be a still or moving image. A moving image can be picking flowers.

Challenge Line:  ‘No Winter Lasts Forever.’ and/or ‘Where flowers bloom so does hope.’ courtesy of Lady Bird Johnson who brought us the wildflowers by our highways initiative.
A line is a movie element that is most often in dialogue; however, as the movie-maker, you decide how to use it.

    • This line can be spoken or shown.
    • You can use one or both lines. Only one is required.
