CALL FOR ENTRIES: 2020 Digital Storytelling Contest

The 2020 Digital Storytelling Contest marks the 10th edition of the contest, first introduced in 2011 by the World Press Photo Foundation as the ‘Multimedia Contest’. The 10th edition intends to draw even more attention to the diversity of formats made possible by digital platforms and the constant developments in documentary film and interactive storytelling. The contest is open to digital storytellers, visual journalists, producers, and entry coordinators, with submissions that include the work of a professional visual journalist.

The contest is open for entry from 2 December 2019. Visit this link to submit your details. The contest closes for entries on 14 January 2020 at 12 noon CET.

The Digital Storytelling Contest, open to short documentary film and interactive productions, recognizes and rewards forms of visual storytelling enabled by digital technologies. The Digital Storytelling Contest awards visual stories in three categories: interactive, long, short.

All three nominees in each of the three categories are invited to the World Press Photo Festival in Amsterdam in April 2020. A representative from each of the nominated productions will have their travel and lodging paid for by the World Press Photo Foundation. The nominees in each category will receive a diploma and a Golden Eye Award, presented during the annual Awards Show.

The Digital Storytelling Contest also now has two headline awards: the World Press Photo Interactive of the Year and the World Press Photo Online Video of the Year.
