Launched in 2014 by FoST and Time Warner, the FoST Prize is a global competition designed to recognize the boundless ingenuity of the storytelling community at large. The FoST Prize awards $10,000 to the most exceptional interactive story of the year, which may include virtual and augmented reality projects, web-based films, data-driven projects, mobile apps, narrative games, multimedia installations, and other multiplatform projects.
In 2016, two FoST Prizes were awarded:
Voted on by a panel of judges from the Future of StoryTelling, the FoST Prize Jury Award selects three finalists, who are invited to attend the annual FoST Summit in October and present their work in the Story Arcade for attendees to experience. The grand prize winner is announced from the Summit main stage and awarded $10,000.
