The Great Search

- Submissions are now closed -

Thank you for applying!

Every story is worth telling.

We’re searching for the best true story. The winner will fly home to Cape Breton.


Maybe the story you share is about love, about a business deal gone south, or maybe the hero you introduce isn’t a hero after all. The only requirement is that the main character has Cape Breton roots but doesn’t live on the island. If your story is the greatest, then we’ll fly your main character home. It’s that simple. The search will end with us making an epic video starring your story’s hero. 


What you should share is totally up to you. We only ask that the story be true. We encourage something authentic and raw instead of perfect. So tell it the best way you know how. If this were a test, the best grades would be handed out to people who wrote from the heart.
