JDS Creative Academy believes that the arts should be accessible to all, therefore DigiFest® Temecula is a reflection of that, with nominal admission and competition fees, allowing all interested in the digital arts to participate.

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. Like many businesses and events, DigiFest® Temecula had to quickly pivot to the virtual world due to the global pandemic. 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!
