In this year's Third Annual Digital Storytelling Challenge, powered by Lights. Camera. Help. more than 200 nonprofits, libraries, and NGOs from 25 countries submitted one-minute videos and five-photo slideshows to showcase the impact they are making on their respective communities. 

We were overwhelmed with the talent and stories you all shared with us! Check out the full playlist of videos on YouTube and gallery of photo sets on Flickr.

On Wednesday, March 28 in San Francisco and live-streamed online, we will screen and award the top photo and video entries. Winners, chosen by a panel of expert judges and the community, will receive products from our award donor partners Cisco, Adobe, Flickr Citrix, Sliderocket, Blazon, SurveyMonkey, and more.

This is a “red carpet” event! You’ll get to meet some of our local judges, see dozens of the best videos and photo stories, and connect with fellow digital storytellers. Whether you live in San Francisco, Australia, or Romania, we’d love for you to join us! Light refreshments will be provided (for those who join us in-person).

RSVP on Meetup or Facebook!
