In Phase 1, the top 25 submissions will receive a prize valued at $3,000, and an invitation to a special communications workshop at Congress 2013 in Victoria, BC.
In Phase 2, those 25 winners will have the chance to deliver their pitch in a “three-minute-thesis”-style talk at the Storytellers Showcase at Congress, competing for one of five slots to deliver a featured presentation at this year’s World Social Science Forum in Montreal.
