Hello TechSoup digital storytellers!
Hope your 2012 is off to a great start. It's that time again... We’ve been
hard at work getting ready for our 3rd annual TechSoup Digital Storytelling
Challenge <http://tsdigs.org> (TSDigs), coming February 2012!
This year is going to be bigger and better than ever. We’re excited to have
teamed up with nonprofit film professionals, Lights. Camera. Help.<http://lightscamerahelp.org> to
bring you (free) training webinars <http://bit.ly/tsdigs12-webinars>, and
will be staffing our forum <http://bit.ly/tsdigsforum>, available to you
24/7 throughout the challenge. We'll also be hosting another suite of tweet
chats <http://bit.ly/tsdigs12-tweetchats> to discuss best practices and
answer your questions on current digital storytelling trends.
