This year, to tie in with our Orwell Youth Prize theme 'Who's in Control?', the Orwell Youth Fellows have created a dystopian and satirical world inspired by George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four and taking in new ideas about our own times, from AI to the climate crisis.
The result was the state of Digitalis - and these are The Digitalis Archives.
