Call for submissions


From April 3 - May 3, 2013, CBC Canada Writes want you to put YOUR story on the Map!

Hyperlocal brings together true personal stories of changing neighbourhoods from Canadians across the country, guest bloggers and well-known writers.

We want to know what's new and changing in your neighbourhood and what that change means to you. You can do that by uploading your personal stories of local change (text-based stories, photo essays, audio, video) to an interactive story map at

All stories will be available to be read online, and at the end of the month a jury will select the most compelling submission from the public. The winning story will be turned into a web-based interactive by the National Film Board of Canada's Digital Studio, and the winner will receive a laptop computer.
