What are you doing when you’re away from screen? Show us your best moment to get featured & maybe even win the first #AwayFromScreen trophy (and a huge package of surprise goodies) at the Forward Online Festival from March 10th-12th! Although the upcoming Festival is an all-digital event, we want to know what you do when your eyes are not on your screen! Do you take your favorite vegetable for a ride or do you pick up an old hobby? Whatever it is that you do “Away from screen”, show us in a creative way!


Everyday life has us stuck to a screen for big parts of the day: We work, shop and meet friends online, read books, watch movies and get our inspiration on the WWW. Our time away from screen decreases as our virtual reality becomes an extension to our analogue one.


So get out there and surprise us and even yourself by doing something you might have never done before! Have you ever wanted to take your favorite vegetable for a wild ride to your favorite place? Have you ever behaved like an animal for an afternoon? Or have you been thinking about picking up an old hobby? Perfect, now is the time to do all of that and capture that exciting moment!


Dress up your pet
Transform your family


This is how you can participate: Capture your best #AwayFromScreen moment on phone or camera and upload it.


You can of course also post it in your Instagram story using the Hashtag #AwayFromScreen and tagging @forwardfestivals, we will be happy to repost!


Together with our host Erik Kessels we’ll choose the most creative submissions, which will be featured live at the Forward Online Festival. Get the first-ever #AwayFromScreen trophy and be our AFS champion!
