There are several stages of a STORYHIVE Edition:
PITCH + PLAN
- Content creators apply for grants by submitting an online application for their project concept.
PROMOTE + VOTE
- TELUS publishes the applications online. In Editions with voting, votes from the community help decide which projects receive funding.
AWARD + PRODUCE
- A panel of industry experts, TELUS team members, and community stakeholders selects the successful projects, considering a number of factors including but not limited to the submitted application, voting results (if applicable), the impact of the award on the creator’s career and/or the importance of the story to the community. The top projects can receive a grant to produce their project.
LAUNCH + WATCH
- On TELUS Optik™ TV On Demand, online and on the go, audiences watch content produced by and for the community.
