The FoST Prize
The digital age is transforming audiences into seekers of intimate experiences, empowering them to have agency over stories. The viewer’s role is evolving—we are the players, encouraged to use our senses to fully inhabit the immersive worlds available through new technologies. 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 virtual and augmented reality, web-based films, data-driven projects, mobile apps, narrative games, multimedia installations, and other multiplatform projects. This year a panel of judges will choose up to 20 of the best submitted projects to be released to the public for online and onsite voting. The project that receives the most votes will win $10,000 and be announced on the last day of FoST Week, October 9th, 2016.
