Digital storytelling, social storytelling, transmedia/cross media, co-creation projects, mobile stories, SoMe based initiatives, second-screen application, radio-supporting games, AR, insight on news and filter bubbles - and a lot more.
On stage you will also meet a number of internationally acclaimed Key Note speakers from all over the world. After each presentation there will be a short Q&A-session.

Alterations may occur
Workshops will take place on the 1st day. The goal is to develop projects for pitch inside the Nordvision. Participants can suggest projects as they sign up or add them later.
Do you want to develop your digital idea? We are now looking for strong, digital projects. Register yours.
What kind of projects are we looking for?
They can be pure digital projects, but also projects unfolding over several platforms (radio, TV, physical events etc.). The ideas should be original and have public service values, where the digital dimension adds value to the project. All genres are welcome.
The workshops aim to further develop, strengthen and clarify the ideas and prepare them for pitch at one of the coproduction meetings inside the Nordvision cooperation.
In addition to the idea-holders, the workshops will also include some of the international names that appear at the festival. You will therefore be able to develop ideas with people who have a solid experience with exactly the type of projects and technology as the ideas require.
Deadline February 19th
Suggestions should be registered no later than on February 19th. The selected projects will be announced in week 8. All applicants will be notified.
Projects chosen will be helped in development workshops on March 22nd 9 am - 12 pm at Yle – immediately prior the Festival for Digital Narratives.
Please, note, there is no guarantee that the workshopped ideas end up in production, in a Nordvision pitch session or receiving support from the Nordvision Fund.
