- Show the next image in series A.
- Ask the same volunteer to say another 2 or 3 sentences while connecting this to what he has been stated already.
- Continue with the third image until the volunteer has created a story out of the three images.
- Allocate about 3 minutes for each delegate.
- Move on to series B and show then to the next delegate.
- Continue with other delegates until all have delivered a story.
- At the end, ask delegates to vote for the best story and explain why they think it is the best.
