Visual storytelling has been with us since the beginning of times. Through the ages the way we tell stories has changed along with the evolution of different media. The capability of the web lets stories take interactive, dynamic and participatory shapes and forms, allowing for engaging experiences around them. Popathon brings together filmmakers, web developers and designers to collaborate on stories that can only be told on the web. Participants team up to brainstorm ideas, create open-source code and demo prototypes of their own web-native stories.

Participatory, Productive & Purposeful

Participants compete against the clock, not against each other. Teams are formed by combining different skills and spend a short and intense period creating a story prototype that is born on the web. After the final sprint all prototypes are presented in a live demo open to the public. All the source code powering the projects will be shared as an open source repository for others to study and build on beyond the event.
