Connected Cities Baltimore

Few places are as rich in history, culture and innovation as the world’s cities, yet we tend to serve the city up as a series of isolated experiences with no connection. How can we use the power of storytelling and mobile technologies to knit together a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts?

izi.TRAVEL is leading the “Connected Cities” initiative to encourage the creation of high quality digital content that connects the stories and people that live in and visit US cities. The Connected Cities initiative kicks off this month with the Baltimore Stories Prize. $25,000 will be offered to collaborative teams in multiple US cities, to create valuable content that will be accessed through a range of platforms, including izi.TRAVEL.
