Planet Forward 2024 Storyfest Finalists

Congratulations to the finalists for Best Video, Best Multimedia Story, and Best Written Story! 

We received 154 entries from 60 schools from around the world. Of those, 32 have now advanced to the judging stage to be reviewed by independent panels of industry leaders and specialists.

Planet Forward 2024 Storyfest Finalists

This year, in an effort to make the competition more inclusive to storytellers of all academic backgrounds, each of the three categories has been divided into two groups; submission by a media student and submission by a non-media student. One winner will be selected in each tier of each of the three categories for a total of 6 winners in competition.

Consideration by the independent judges will be based on the following four categories:

  • Creativity and compelling use of your media format
  • Storytelling and presentation
  • Editorial quality, clarity of information, and factual accuracy
  • Impact and engagement

Two finalists will also be selected for GW Award for Excellence in Storytelling and for the Spotlight Award for Community Storytelling, respectively.

The announcement of all 8 winners of Storyfest 2024 will be made at the Planet Forward Summit on April 18, 2024. You can register for the free event here!
