Breakthroughs in Storytelling | 2016

Celebrating the year’s most creative examples of digitally enabled storytelling.

Columbia’s “Digital Dozen: Breakthroughs in Storytelling” awards recognize signal achievements across the wide spectrum of media that rely on digital technologies, including cinema, video, journalism, advertising, marketing, games, art, fiction, virtual reality, and experimental narratives. In citing these accomplishments, the Digital Storytelling Lab hopes to encourage creativity and innovation while furthering digital media’s potential to break free of rigid, industrial-age classifications and evolve in ways that analog media could not.

Winners are chosen by members and associates of the Digital Storytelling Lab and will be celebrated in a program at Lincoln Center’s Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center on Wednesday, April 5. In addition, one of the winners will be awarded a special jury prize: a collaborative workshop at the Lab designed to help spur the development of a new project.
