MEET THE FINALISTS

By Melanie Picard

In honor of swissnex San Francisco’s 10th Anniversary, we asked students of Swiss Universities and Universities of Applied Sciences to imagine the future through a transmedia story set 10 years from now, in 2023.

The competition is over and our international jury has intensively deliberated. We now proudly present the three finalists. Who are the winners? It’s still a secret. The winners will be announced at the STORY2023 Awards Ceremony on September 27th at the X Media Lab conference in Switzerland and communicated broadly at that time.
