What is Re-imagine Storytelling all about?

We have moved into the digital and information age. This means that the way we tell stories has evolved from simply spreading the news to getting the reader involved. This is what Re-imagine Storytelling is all about. It brings together elements of data, tech, journalism and activism. It goes beyond just reporting issues of social justice to actively trying to solve them.

We chose eight final teams to compete for a cash prize of R20,000. All projects were guaranteed a small budget to work with, Codebridge resources, a cool space where you can plot, plan and create, as well as media coverage.
