Does your nonprofit organization have an inspiring, funny, or heart-wrenching story to tell? Are there digital tools that can help you tell your story better? If you answered "yes" (and you should!), then TechSoup challenges your group to come up with a short digital story for the TechSoup Digital Storytelling Challenge.
TechSoup’s annual Digital Storytelling Challenge (also known as TSDigs), powered by Lights. Camera. Help., has launched for 2012. The Digital Storytelling Challenge combines professional instruction and friendly competition into a hands-on media-making project. Organizations participate in a series of short, interactive online trainings, apply that knowledge to create their digital story, then submit a one-minute video or five-picture slideshow to the TSDigs Challenge by February 29.
A panel of expert judges selects the very best entries to win terrific prizes consisting of tools and resources to take their digital storytelling to the next level. Organizations also keep and can use their digital story as a vital resource for promoting their work and connecting to constituents.
For nonprofits active in virtual worlds, 3D immersive worlds are such a compelling storytelling medium with rich images, video, and characters. So get cracking on telling the digital story of your organization today! Remember the deadline is February 29.
Then mark your calendars for March 28, 7 pm PT when TechSoup will be throwing an Awards Screening Party at TechSoup HQ in San Francisco and Live-Streaming in Nonprofit Commons in Second Life.
