Yes folks, all is finally revealed: after months of painstaking assessment, we’re happy to announce the 2014 New Media Writing Prize Shortlist. The list is chock full of some pretty amazing projects [such as 3D and 2D textual games, geolocative based treasure hunts, engaging browser works and velvety-smooth mobile based narratives].
For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the The NMWP [as us judges have fondly come to call it], this friendly sound-byte description should bring you right up to speed: “The New Media Writing Prize showcases exciting and inventive stories that integrate a variety of formats, platforms, and digital media. This international prize is now in its 5th year. The prize encourages and promotes the best in new media writing and is leading the way toward the future of the ‘written’ word and storytelling. In the past four years, the NMWP has attracted entries from the very best and most innovative writers in the field.” For the full Shortlist, have a squizz at our official site here.
