The New Media Writing Prize is looking for good storytelling (fiction or non-fiction) written specifically for delivery and reading/viewing on a PC or Mac, the web, or a hand-held device such as an iPad or mobile phone. The competition is organised by Bournemouth University Higher Education Corporation. It could be a short story, novel, poem, documentary or transmedia work using words, images, film or animation with audience interaction. Interactivity is a key element of new-media storytelling. The essence of new-media writing is great storytelling which uses anything and everything that digital media can offer, along with user/audience interactivity.
