Iowa Voices

Create a video

  • Submit a Video to Iowa Voices here! 
  • Video storytelling is a way for us to share our stories with others. We see, we hear, and connect with others. Whether we or not we know the storyteller, we develop feelings when we see and hear them share. Stories help us understand others. Stories connect us. 
  • Shoot the video horizontally if you are sharing to Iowa Voices, posting to Facebook or Youtube
  • Shoot the video vertically if you are posting to Facebook Stories, Instagram Reels, Snapchat, or TikTok
  • Follow these steps to create a video to share: 
  1. Find a quiet space without a lot of background noise or distractions. 
  2. Tell us a little about yourself and the Iowa you’d like to see 
  3. Either grab a friend to help you record, or record a selfie.
  4. Make sure the lighting is good and no one else is in your frame.
  5. Record your story in 30-45 seconds. Under a minute is best. 
  6. Submit using this form here.
