The first annual StoryhackVT competition is this weekend and our office is fielding a team!
Organized by Nate Herzog, the event challenges participants to tell an original story across three or more digital media platforms in just 24 hours. Each story will have to incorporate, in some creative way, the theme of the contest, which will be announced only moments before the competition begins on Saturday morning.
Once the theme is revealed, our team – Reporter Hack – will begin working feverishly to craft our story before time runs out at 10 a.m. on Sunday.
Our finished product will be posted on the StoryhackVT website (www.storyhackvt.com) for viewing just after 12 p.m. on Sunday. The public will be able to peruse all submissions, in whatever form they are in, and cast a vote for the one deemed best until 12 a.m. Monday. After the deadline closes, the votes will be tallied and winners will be announced.
Check out our project and, if you feel so inclined, vote for us at http://storyhackvt.com/vote/.
