YOU HAVE
A STORY

We want to amplify it.

 

Collaborate with us to tell your story and make positive waves for our blue planet.

 

BE A VOICE FOR OUR OCEAN

THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT OUR OCEAN, AND IT’S IMPORTANCE, IS THROUGH STORYTELLING.

Storytelling is as old as humankind and as powerful as the mightiest of Ocean waves.

 

Since 2009, we’ve been using Science and Storytelling to connect millions of people to our Ocean, educate them about its importance, and empower them to take action to protect it.

 

More than ever, we want to platform young voices doing the same.

We want to share your stories, your insights, and the journey you’ve been on – learning about and bettering – our blue planet.

 

Wavemaker Stories submissions are open to writers and video content creators between 16 – 25 years old.

 

Gain experience in content creation as you create written/ short-video content about the world through an Ocean positive lens.
✅  Work with our comms and science teams to get your piece fit for digital publication.
Selected Wavemaker Stories will be amplified on our social channels and earn you a £50 fee for your work.

 

*Our Ocean Generation community is made up of almost 100,000 individuals.

Writer? Filmmaker? Journalist? Photographer? Influencer? You're in the right place.

How do you want to tell your story?

    “What should my content be about?”

    We’re accepting Ocean positive stories in written and video formats.

     

    Topics can range from personal journeys to big picture solutions. Want to tell us what your connection to the Ocean is? Is your local area doing something incredible? Maybe you want to spotlight someone inspiring in your community?
