Digital Storytelling Contest
The winning entries in the Digital Storytelling Contest will be presented on large panels and screens in the middle of the exhibition in the sanctuary. The Digital Storytelling Contest was established in 2011 in recognition of journalism’s increasing use of moving images and the internet.
