COME LISTEN TO A PROPHET'S VOICE.
How do you experience general conference? Be a part of Church history this October as the Church documents how members all over the world participate in general conference. Document your experience in video. Your video clips could be seen by members and nonmembers from around the world.
RECORD YOUR EXPERIENCE
Use your video camera to record your general conference experience.
Whether you gather with your family and watch conference in your local chapel, watch the broadcast online, or listen on your mobile device—or even read the messages in the Liahonamagazine—people around the globe would like to see how you experience general conference.
Your clips should respond to one or more of the following questions:
- How do you prepare for general conference?
- Where do you gather to experience general conference?
- How do you get there?
- What about general conference inspired you?
- How do you reflect on the words of the prophets and apostles?
- After the conference, how do you apply the teachings?
GET YOUR CAMERA READY
Use your DSLR, video camera, or camera phone to capture your story.
Shoot in HD if possible. If not, record in the best quality possible. Show your experience—don’t simply talk about it. Be creative! A variety of short clips (10–20 seconds) are preferable to long clips.

BE PART OF SOMETHING GREAT
The Church will use these clips to create a video that will be released prior to the April 2012 general conference. The video will document how millions of members gather to hear and read the words of living prophets and apostles. It will serve as an invitation to the entire world to “come, listen to a prophet’s voice.”
Please include in your submission a clip of yourself looking into the camera and inviting others to experience general conference by saying the words “come, listen to a prophet’s voice” in your native language and in English, if possible.
Please remember to be respectful of others in documenting your experience. Do not disrupt people experiencing general conference in any way. Please remember that filming inside of chapels is inappropriate. Also, please be aware not to record brands or logos that may inhibit use of your clips.
Per Church policy, certain forms must be signed in order for us to use your video. The Participant Release form needs to be signed by everyone that is in your video. A Location Release is also needed when shooting on privately owned property other than Church-owned property. Where possible, please complete and e-mail these forms to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your video.
