Winning the Internet

TechSoup’s digital storytelling challenge

After a great run, the Winning the Internet blog has been retired. However, you can still keep in touch with New Media Mentors here.

TechSoup is doing something pretty cool that you should know about. They’ve got a digital storytelling challenge going on that’s one part competition and one part professional instruction. Storytelling is the secret sauce to being successful with video in your work. You don’t need the most expensive camera on the market and you don’t need to be a pro if you can tell a story.

Here are the learning opportunities they’re doing as part of the contest:

All learning events are 11:00 a.m. Pacific time
February 2: Webinar on Pre-production
February 7: Live Tweet Chat
February 8: Nonprofits Live on Collaborative Video
February 9: Webinar on Production
February 14: Live Tweet Chat
February 16: Webinar on Post-Production

The contest itself launched today and ends on February 29th. You’ll want to go to their site to get all the details and sign up for emails on the webinars.
