The Rules

  1. Teams must have between one and five members.

  2. Teams will be provided a theme at the start of the Hack. The theme must be incorporated into the story in some way.

  3. Stories must be told across (at least) three digital media.*

  4. All stories must be original works and composed during the Storyhack.



* We’re playing loose with the definition of “digital medium” here. Digital media can be picture galleries, video, animation, blogs, social media, games and more. It just has to be able to be shared and viewed  on the Internet. The more creative you are, the more willing we are to let it slide.
