JDS Creative Academy welcomes all it’s supporters and sponsors, and is thankful to Abbott for being DigiFest® ‘s title sponsor for the sixth year running. DigiFest® Temecula is also proud to partner with Riverside County’s Innovation Month Campaign with their ongoing six-year sponsorship commitment to DigiFest® Temecula and enjoy being showcased among the region’s many leading-edge events.

The experiences of 2020 and 2021 have pushed the organization to expand its definition of innovative digital media.

This year, DigiFest® Temecula is excited to be back in-person, while still offering the virtual experience to their worldwide audience and festival competition submitters!
