The Success Of The 2022 LBL Charitable Foundation Limited’s Acting Competition:
This year’s acting competition was highly successful, contestants from all walks of life applied, and we had five lucky contestants who won the contest allowing for their talented work, from singing/performing to acting out scenes etc., to be showcased to our audiences on our LinkedIn and Facebook page.
These five contestants, in order from first to fifth, were Logan Full, Andy James, Patrick Gallagher, Fleur Pereira and last but certainly not least, Renee Kwok. All five were awarded a 1-year acting contract for their goosebump-giving performances, allowing them to continue to move forward in their bright careers, developing their artistic skills further and building on their creative portfolios.
The ‘showcase night’ was held on the 26th of November this year, and the video presenting the lucky five winner’s work was released to social media for viewers to tune into for free between 7 and 8 pm AESTT.
The competition allowed talented individuals to express their creativity in a supportive and encouraging environment. Expressing imagination in art is the perfect way to improve one’s well-being and life. Allowing the contestants to express their creativity is crucial in achieving this event’s primary goal, which was to help achieve our overall organisational goal of improving the mental health and well-being of individuals across Australia and in overseas communities.
However, improving your mental health and well-being is only one of the many benefits you may gain by interacting in and with a competition like this. Other benefits include:
- Increase your confidence in filmmaking/acting by using the event to grow and develop your artistic skills and be supported by an audience and participants with the same interest.
- By partaking in the competition, you can improve your well-being by calming your mind and being part of something you are interested in and enjoy doing.
- Improve your communication skills by practising your filmmaking and or acting skills.
- Release endorphins, thus reducing the severity of any symptoms of depression that participants may have.
- Learn new skills.
- Filmmaking can reduce any stress and anxiety
- Improve your immune system.
- Expand your creativity.
- And you are keeping the right hemisphere of your brain (the creative side) active.
