Sparknews is a key international player on the social impact scene, actively bringing together media leaders and the people behind these very important local innovative projects. Sparknews' primary mission is to bring to light and share these inspiring and innovative solutions - thereby helping to spark action for change through -

- An attractive video share platform.

- 'Impact Journalism Day' - an international event uniting 70 leading newspapers from 50 countries worldwide.

With this exciting new partner, YDA will perfectly augment the Sparknews media offer by adding its quality and audiovisual expertise. YDA will also be working to offer young directors around the world, the possibility of discovering a local story or even if they wish - an international innovation story, capturing it on film and bringing it to a worldwide audience on Sparknews' collaborative video platform service, as well as on our YDA website.

YDA is calling on ad agencies and brands to join them, tell them their stories and meet the young filmmakers.

Says a spokesperson for YDA: "And so, we at YDA, are there to put you directly in contact with these directors, actors or brands - those inspired people searching for solutions in your own neighborhood or across the seas.

"Match your talent with theirs and make something important happen. Show the world what you can do."
