The Media School at Bournemouth University, U.K., is accepting entries from students, bloggers, artists and writers for its New Media Writing Prize, or NMWP. The international competition is open to anyone, anywhere.
NMWP is looking for innovative and interactive storytelling (fiction or non-fiction) written specifically for delivery and reading/viewing on a PC or Mac, the Web or hand-held devices such as iPads and mobile phones.
The entry can be a short story, novel, documentary or poem and can use words, images, film or animation with audience interaction.
The overall winner will receive £1,000 (approximately $1,600 U.S.). The student winner will receive a three-month work placement at Unicorn Training, a leading e-learning company in Dorset, U.K. There will also be a People’s Choice winner.
