Interested in online community, emerging technologies, digital storytelling, or all of the above? You definitely won't want to miss this special Online Community MeetUp for a mixed reality Digital Storytelling Screening and Awards Party.
TechSoup Global (your MeetUp host) is hosting a Digital Storytelling Online Event and Challenge (aka TSDigs). This free event challenged social benefit organizations and libraries to create a 60 second video or photo submission, showcasing their mission and work.
The submissions are in and the judging is on! Our panel of judges is reviewing the submissions and winners will be announced February 14th. Prizes include products from Flip Video, Adobe, Flickr, Publishers with A Purpose, and more!
Vote for your favorite story in the Audience Choice Awards through Friday, February 11th.
Here's the best part: The Feb. MeetUp will be a screening of top story submissions with an awards ceremony for the winners! Join us for our Feb. MeetUp, Wednesday Feb. 23, 7PM, at TechSoup headquarters in San Francisco. Watch the challenge submissions from fellow social changemakers, broadcasting live in San Francisco, streamed on the web, discussed on TweetChat and projected into the virtual world of Second Life (slurl to location in Second Life).
