Ends on

We are currently accepting submissions of work to feature on our online platform watch.opensignalpdx.org that reflects one of the following genres: 1) Narrative, 2) Social Impact and 3) New Media. If you have a short film, experimental piece, podcast or other originally produced work we’d love to see it!


Narrative = tells a story, fiction and nonfiction are both accepted, this is our most broad genre!

Social Impact = informs the audience of a pressing social or political issue 

New Media = experiments with emerging technology such as virtual and augmented reality


All selected media will be featured on the front page of our website and promoted in our newsletter, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Before you submit please read all the text below and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. 


Selection Criteria 

We prioritize content that:

1) is produced primarily by BIPOC and under-represented media-makers from the Portland Metro Area.

2) reflects the current climate (be it politically, culturally or otherwise).

3) deepens our understanding of place.

4) uplifts and elevates the audience and/or subject.
