Bournemouth University in association with if: book UK announces the sixth
annual New Media Writing Prize, now open for entries.

The competition encourages writers working with digital media to showcase
their skills. It also aims to provoke discussion and raise awareness of
new-media storytelling. The prize has four categories: Overall Winner, Best
Student, the People’s Choice, and The Dot Prize (new for this year).

THE PRIZES ARE:
• £1000, donated by if:book UK for the Overall Winner.
• a 3-month paid work-placement at top e-learning company, Unicorn
Training, in Dorset, UK, for the Best Student.
• £500 for the People’s Choice, voted for by the reading public, donated by
Sea Salt Learning.
• £500 and development support, for The Dot Prize, donated by if:book UK
for the best idea for a new project.

The judging panel are looking for great storytelling (fiction or
non-fiction) written specifically for delivery and reading/viewing on a PC
or Mac, or a hand-held device such as an iPad or mobile phone. It could be
a short story, novel, documentary or poem, using words, images, film or
animation with audience interactivity.

Whether you’re a student, a professional, or simply an enthusiast, anyone
can apply. It's an international competition, open to all outside the UK.
Entries must be in English.

The deadline is Friday November 27th 2015 at 12 noon GMT. Closing date for
students is Friday December 11th at 12 noon GMT. Each entry should be
