As the Covid-19 pandemic swept through the world, our FRIENDS from the Philippines, Thailand, Bhutan, Malaysia and Cambodia were also affected. While the uncertainty around the globe affected all fields of life, FRIENDS’ digital stories transformed into a way of connecting internationally, at least virtually, while no other international travel was allowed.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, another Digital Storytelling contest was conducted in 2022. The winning video creators in the Dewey International University are Rothnika Chhunchhom, Chhiv Teang Ly, Sangmoni Chou, and Leaphea Kong. Their digital stories, as well as the many other submitted, can be viewed at the following link.
First Digital Storytelling Contest at DIU (2020)
In total, 20 student digital stories were developed by students of DIU in Cambodia in the framework of the Digital Storytelling Contest facilitated by the institution. The Contest was conducted in the framework of Intercultural Passport virtual module’s piloting stage at DIU in 2020. You can watch all videos submitted in the Contest below.
The digital stories created by Samnang Vet, Makara Kung and Panhapov Thornwere ranked first, second and respectively third based on the assessment of the jury and the number of points collected. Congratulations to the three student winners at DIU!
All videos crafted by DIU students throughout the project life time could be found here on the FRIENDS Youtube Channel.
