The prize for digital storytelling is inviting entries for this year's awards
The New Media Writing Prize is awarded annually for interactive new media writing – storytelling that is created specifically to be consumed via a PC or Mac, or a handheld device (ie tablet or smartphone) or online. Entries may be fiction or non-fiction, including novels, short stories, poems, documentaries, or transmedia works. Interactivity must be a key component and the judges will be looking for innovative use of digital media to create an involving narrative.
This year's award is in the following categories:
• The Chris Meade Memorial UK New Media Writing Prize: £1,000
• The Opening Up Award: £500
• The Digital Journalism Award: £500 and free membership of the FIPP
• The Student Award: TBC.
• The IDN for Social Good Award: £500
Each entry should include an active access code or URL to the work.
Entry is free.
The closing date is 1 February 2024.
