2008 Digital Media and Learning Competition

We want to encourage all BDPAers to check out the $2 million Digital Media and Learning Competition focused on participatory learning.

Participatory learning is defined broadly: using new digital media for sharing ideas or planning, designing, implementing, or just discussing ideas and goals together.

Application Deadline: October 15, 2008

Full information at:

Awards will be made in two categories:

Innovation in Participatory Learning Awards support large-scale digital learning projects ($30,000-$250,000) - This year we are piloting international eligibility for our Innovation Award and will be accepting submissions from primary applicants in Canada, People's Republic of China, India, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Nigeria, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States; collaborators can be from anywhere in the world.

Young Innovator Awards are targeted at U.S. applicants aged 18-25 year olds ($5,000-$30,000).

It would be nice to see some BDPA professionals and students participating in the competition this year!
