Platform X Multiplatform Storytelling Competition – Extended Deadline

By May 11, 2015 Entries

Presented by the Australian Writers’ Guild, Platform X: The Multiplatform Storytelling Competition, is a unique opportunity for Australian writers to expand their skills in interactive and multiplatform storytelling.

The prize:

• Eight writers from NSW and the ACT will be selected to take part in an intensive two-day weekend masterclass run by Head of Story Development for Portal Entertainment Mike Jones, focusing on project development and cross platform writing skills.

• A post-master class concept review with Mike Jones and award-winning producer Ester Harding, followed by a pitching session to an audience of designers, technologists, producers and writers at the Storycode Meet Up.

What we are looking for:

• Engaging storyworlds that have the potential to span across traditional, new and interactive platforms.

• A narrative concept that can drive experiences beyond a single plot or a single platform and encapsulate a clear role for the audience to participate or play.

• Creators with a strong sense of audience, engagement and genre as well as projects that will compel audiences to immerse themselves and become active within a rich experience.

• You do not have to be a technology expert. We are looking for writers with vision and ideas for constructing narratives across media platforms.
