“Thank you for the generous donation of $1000 from Goodness Reigns. This amount will provide three first-time borrowers with a foundation loan, which, in our experience, enables a family to begin their steady and permanent journey out of poverty.”
- Morris Stuart, Founder of The Mutunga Partnership

The Mutunga Partnership in Kenya was the focus of Australian filmmaker Amy Dwight’s 2013 contest submission, which won the “Good Samaritan in Media Award.”

“Making a film was difficult—we had a borrowed camera and no experience at all. But mostly it was a blest time. We saw God working in unexpected and wonderful ways.”
- Filmmaker from India

“Besides the tremendous thrill we all experienced when we first found out we won the prize, the purchase of these cameras and light kits enabled us to do what God is calling us to: help Catholics spread the Good News.”
- Tracy Tremblay, Quiet Waters, Inc.

“The Film Contest was an excellent opportunity for artists who want to make films with special messages corresponding to the values of Jesus Christ’s life.”
– GR Winner, Filmmaker Carlos Godoy of Colombia

“Goodness Reigns was, in a way, the catalyst to re-awaken in me the passion to start using the gifts God has given me for his glory. I have the blessing of working at EWTN now, doing what I love, and have started to get involved in more faith-based media projects on the side.”
- Sam Zamarron, Production at EWTN, Alabama

“Goodness Reigns is an epic name for an epic organization! In this age of YouTubers and Vines and five-year-olds editing video, why not put young people’s visual storytelling talents to use for the Gospel, to encourage them to do more with media, and even reward them for it? I wish there were 100 Goodness Reigns contests.”
-Sr. Helena Burns, fsp, (panel judge, Daughters of St. Paul, director of www.MediaApostle.com

    “For young filmmakers with a missionary heart to be able to see their film presented at an international Catholic event is a huge encouragement in their digital evangelization.“
    Filmmaker & Film Fest Emcee Carlos Tobon

    “The prize money was an answer to prayers. Where I live in Australia, it’s not an option not to have a car. At the time, I had no money, so I let the Lord know my conundrum! … (the cost) came to the exact amount of the money that I won. …Surely Goodness does reign for those who love and serve the Lord.”
    – GR Winner, Filmmaker Amy Dwight

    “The New Evangelization is here, and the experience I now have in it all has been the stuff they write about in adventure tales. Thank you Goodness Reigns for helping me gain the confidence and experience in such an awesome profession! Praise be Jesus Christ Now and Forever! We’ll see what He has in store from here!”
    -GR Filmmaker John Sohl

    “Thanks to Goodness Reigns and its ongoing contests, there is increased incentive to refine our skills as a mission at OneBillionStories.com, in order to produce beautiful life-giving messages through film. We all have to pay our bills, so if a little competition and some prize money help inspire young people to create epic videos in order to pay those bills, then we at OneBillionStories.com say Amen! We are forever grateful for these ongoing opportunities that Goodness Reigns presents to show the world through film that the Church is here to stay.”
    -GR Winner, Filmmaker Seth J. DeMoor, Founder & President of OneBillionStories.com

    “Winning this teen film prize has had an incredible impact on the tools we offered the youth this summer during our Srodowski Media Retreats. … In total 65 youth participated in creating 10 videos which we are now posting on the Quiet Waters Youtube channel. All of these videos were created with the two cameras and lighting kits we purchased with our first installment of the prize money.
    “Besides the tremendous thrill we all experienced when we first found out we won the prize, the purchase of these items enabled us to do what God is calling us to: help Catholics spread the Good News. In this instance, we are helping our youth share positive, entertaining and simply joyful high def videos with the world! Our videos focus on certain aspects of our Catholic faith, while the youth learn about filming interviews with 3-point lighting. And, people are watching! ”
