About the Digital Media and Learning Competition

The Digital Media and Learning Competition is an effort designed to find and to inspire the most novel uses of new media in support of learning. Over the past 5 years, the Competition has awarded $10 million to more than 100 projects in 20 countries that explore how technologies—including games, mobile phone applications, virtual worlds, social networks, and digital badge platforms—are changing the way people learn and participate in daily life.

The Competition is supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and administered by HASTAC (the Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory). This endeavor invites U.S. and international participants to compete for approximately $2 million in grant awards for domestic and international projects that use digital or new media as platforms for connected learning.

Over the years, Digital Media and Learning Competition partners have included Sony (Competition 3), EA (Competition 3), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (Competition 4), Mozilla (Competitions 4&5), the Born This Way Foundation (Competition 5), Facebook (Competition 5), and the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI, Competition 5).
