Submit Your Video

Want to submit a video to The Mighty?

Follow these instructions to maximize your chances of getting your story published.

Here are some types of videos to get you started:

  • Vlog: share your story, talk about yourself and your journey.
  • Short Film: a narrative short film related to your condition (note: anyone appearing in a video about a condition should actually have the condition they’re portraying).
  • Tips Video: do you have 7 never-before-heard-of ways to get through a panic attack? 9 tried-and-true things you do on a bad pain day?

Submission Guidelines

  • Shoot horizontally
  • Be in a quiet place
  • Make sure you’re in a very well-lit place

  • Leave a few seconds before you stop recording.
