The cine-book is a brand new type of storytelling based on next-generation media format for digital content! Our Photo Stories is a photo-comics format with a dynamic plot, charismatic characters, and an unpredictable outcome. The plot is built according to the rules of dramaturgy: the setup – the opposition - the climax - the resolution. The best-suited genres for stories are thrillers, horror, romance, and mystery that are focused on the young adult (YA) audience. Your story must be unpredictable and out of the ordinary.

ALL THE WORKS selected by the moderators, with the consent of the authors, will be added after the contest for a paid Premium Channel public channel. Additionally, their authors will benefit from the views of channel subscribers.

Participation is free of charge.
You can join the contest until December 25, 2018!

The winners of the contest will be announced on January 8, 2019!
