What is the Digital Storytelling Competition?

This competition is organised by the National Book Development Council of Singapore (NBDCS) and Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s (NP) School of Film & Media Studies (FMS) as a platform to tell stories through a fusion of art and technology. Using time-honored storytelling techniques and blending them with rich media and digital tools, you’ll bring your stories off the page and onto the web, where they’ll be seen by millions of people around the world!

How do I get started?

Simply join our Creative Workshops — designed to kick-start your digital storytelling journey — held between July and October 2013. Conducted by experienced FMS lecturers, the workshops will give participants the opportunity to experience the art of storytelling through editing, radio journalism and visual effects workshops.

Is there a theme for the competition?

All digital stories must include a narrative that relates to the theme of:

You + Me = We
This theme is about how we can find common ground and common stories regardless of race or religion, when we come together.

The digital stories must be multi-media in composition and personal in orientation. The stories must be outward creative expression of what the digital storytellers feel and think regarding a specific topic. Please note that the theme of the competition is NOT the title of your film.
