While we’re on the subject of social media, I thought I’d point to a couple of notable digital projects by Loyola Press, the sponsor of this website.
The Press’s 3-Minute Retreat has just won the 2012 Wilbur award for web-based communications in multimedia or online video from the Religion Communications Council. This is a pretty big deal. The Council is also giving awards this year to CBS News, Entertainment Weekly, and the Oscar-nominated film The Help. The 3-Minute Retreat combines music, scripture, and reflective questions. A new one is posted every morning.
The other project is a contest for students and teachers to produce the best short video that answers the question “Where do you find God?” Entries are posted here, and if you look at a couple of them, you’ll see that this contest is incredibly cute and thoroughly charming.
