You’ve heard of birthday weeks, or even birthday months — but here at TELUS STORYHIVE, we’ve been celebrating our birthday all year! 

To celebrate a decade of local storytelling, we’re giving away content creator kits worth $500 as part of the STORYHIVE 10 Year Anniversary contest. Continue reading to learn more about how you can enter! 

STORYHIVERs have been taking to social media and our inboxes to tell us about how STORYHIVE has impacted their journey as content creators, and we’ve loved reading each of your experiences. 

Here are a few of our favourite quotes so far

“STORYHIVE made my journey as a content creator in southern Alberta more tangible. STORYHIVE provided me with the resources and encouragement to take those first steps. I now feel like I can look up from the path (every now and then) and see the horizon, smell the flowers, and adjust accordingly. STORYHIVE helped me develop a level of autonomy in my artistic practice at a time when many artistic disciplines weren't able to practice.”

 — Daniel Perryman, Thy Bard: Shakesonnet (Voices), The Windy City's Finest (STORYHIVE Summer Crew)

Submitted by Daniel Perryman, behind-the-scenes of his STORYHIVE Summer Crew project, “The Windy City's Finest.”

“STORYHIVE was the first one who ever believed in a pitch of mine when I was starting in the industry in 2017. By funding the very first project, a music video, I directed, it has since propelled me onto bigger things, it's how I met my mentors and repeat collaborators to this day. It definitely gave me the boost that I needed to get my career started.”

 — Dianne Wulf, Hometown Sundowns, The Legend of Mindi, Rise Up (STORYHIVE Editions)

“STORYHIVE has been an essential part of my growth as a content creator. Without their support I would not have the skills and confidence in my work that I have today. And that's without even mentioning the Summer Crew experience in 2022, which was one of the best things I've ever done in my life. STORYHIVE for life!” 

— Todd Sullivan, Half-Cut Myths and Mysteries (Podcast Edition); Just North of Hollywood North (Voices)

“STORYHIVE has given me the opportunity to create a podcast with more ease. Being able to learn about filmmaking and content creating has been an informative experience thus far. I'm excited about all the learning I'll be doing over the next few months.”

— Nikita Bucknor, Melanin Convos (STORYHIVE Voices)
