CMA2016 320_Pilgrim Prize winner Chris Bailey_300x150The 2016 Pilgrim Graham Wade Media Prize has been awarded to Christopher Bailey for ‘The Parting Gift’, a short film distributed within a mobile app.

Chris created the film for Campus Crusade Australia, to be used in face to face evangelism on university campuses.

The six minute film is embedded in an app that helps individuals easily explain Christianity to people who want to learn more about it.

“We have made the app and all its training material available for free, and this has enabled it to spread far. We are now seeing use in over 8 different countries and have nearly 1500 active users. The gospel has been shared almost 1000 times and over 500 people have indicated a desire to meet again to learn more about Christianity. 52 people have accepted Christ on the spot.”

“The quality of the film has also found a place in the secular market with two film festival acceptances within the first two months of submitting to festivals.”
