The FoST Prize
Technology is changing the ways that we tell stories, allowing for greater interactivity, participation, and emotional engagement. To celebrate this renaissance of creativity, in 2014 FoST and Time Warner launched the annual FoST Prize, a global competition designed to recognize the boundless ingenuity of the storytelling community at large. The FoST Prize is awarded to the most exceptional interactive story of the year, which may include but is not limited to, web-based films, data-driven art, mobile apps, narrative games, multimedia installations, augmented-reality experiences, virtual reality, and other multiplatform projects. Submissions are judged based on the quality of the user experience; their ability to communicate a clear narrative; their emotional resonance; and their design execution. The grand prize winner is announced at the FoST summit during the main stage awards ceremony and awarded a cash prize of $10,000.
