We’re incredibly excited to announce that Kevin has joined the COLLECTIVE team as a Resident Pro, and is launching his first contest—CONQUERED.
CONQUERED is a micro-documentary film contest about overcoming an obstacle that others can relate to, like overcoming a fear of public speaking, quitting a job that wasn’t ideal, coming out to your family, or setting and achieving an ambitious goal. You could have overcome this obstacle personally, or choose to share someone else’s story in which they overcame an obstacle.
