Digital Storytelling Open Call for Submissions

Urban Ink is delighted to announce an open call for submissions from storytellers with interest in digital creation across any of the following: short film, web-series, virtual reality, podcast, podplays, sound walk, digital installation, or a hybrid of any of these and more. In particular, we’re seeking works that combine and integrate disciplines, cultural and artistic perspectives, and inter-racial experiences; encouraging the development of new works that explore content and form through digital experience.

We will select one or more project(s) to receive a digital storytelling workshop in their chosen medium. Successful applicants will receive the funds to create, develop, and produce their project idea (to be negotiated with individual creators once selected). Projects are expected to be completed within approximately 6-8 months. This Open Call For Submissions welcomes projects in all stages of development.

Deadline to submit: May 7, 2021
