The USC Transmedia Forum is an annual contest held in the Spring semester for USC undergraduate students honoring digital innovation in creative scholarly work. Students from all majors and schools across the USC campus are encouraged to submit entries. The Forum seeks any kind of academic work that is not on paper, but instead takes advantage of images, video, networked connectivity, mobile devices or other media forms to make an argument or demonstrate a point. From websites and mobile apps to locative media and tangible computing, we invite a full range of projects that explore an idea, display research or promote change.
Literacy can take many forms in the 21st century. The IML is dedicated to exploring these new forms of media and understanding how to use them effectively. Learn more about how your proficiency in multimedia can influence your powers of communication and self-expression.
