MY World 360º August 31st Call for Submissions

MY World 360° Program Guide

The global COVID-19 health crisis is affecting people across the planet and across all facets of life, from jobs to access to education, basic services and family life. It’s also highlighting the importance of solidarity and how our individual actions have an impact in our communities and on the lives of people all over the planet, shaping the world we live in. Through immersive storytelling we can bring everyone closer together and inspire actions that have a positive impact for people and for the planet and create a common vision for a better world.

Since 2018, MY World 360˚ creators around the world have used immersive storytelling to share what is going on in their communities and to inspire action on the Sustainable Development Goals, a global call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. From climate action reporting to stories of local innovation and resilience, participants shine a spotlight on issues most relevant to them and their communities, by using new and emerging multimedia formats.

For this new cycle of MY World 360°, we invite creators of all ages, globally and in all languages, to share how they themselves, or people in their community, are making a difference in the face of COVID-19, and how these actions bring us closer to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Share with us your vision for the world you want to see after COVID19, a world where the Goals are achieved.

We recognize that many people are restricted to move freely in the effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, we are expanding the call to all types of immersive media and encourage virtual team work and co-creation across borders to harness the world’s collective creativity and ideas.

MY World 360° is a global partnership initiative led by Digital Promise, Oculus, and the UN SDG Action Campaign that invites creators worldwide to use immersive storytelling to inspire action on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Individuals or teams are welcome to create or co-create and share projects. Educators and adults working with students under age 18 are welcome to share their students’ media. Creators ages 18 and older are welcome to post their original work directly. Projects can be in any language.

Since launching in 2018, MY World 360° has exhibited at in-person events like the United Nations General Assembly in New York City, COP24 and COP25, the UN SDG Global Festival of Action, the DW Global Media Forum, Re:Publica and other global events. In light of the current pandemic, we will be rolling out an expanded digital exhibition to reach the largest audience possible. Follow www.myworld360.org for details!

We can’t wait to see what you create!

Ready?

Mixed Media (Audio, Photography, Video, Animation and Design)

Combine audio, photography, video, animation, or design to tell a story or share creative work. Storytelling and design have the power to educate and inspire people. Consider these questions as you think about what you want to create and how you want to capture people’s attention and engage them in meaningful ways.

Your media could take any form, from narrative to documentary to experimental. The only requirement is that it relates to taking care of each other and the world we live in, and that you connect it back to one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Sample Audio, Photography, Video, Animation and Design Apps and Tools

Interactive Design

Use 2D, 3D, or virtual reality elements to build an interactive digital game, simulation, or experience that others can interact with. Creating for interactive design projects is often referred to as “experience prototyping.” As you think about what experience you want to create, the questions below might be helpful to consider.

Your interactive design could take any form, from an interactive game to an immersive virtual world, and should relate to one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals.
