What is the Challenge Question?
How might local television and radio broadcasters engage their communities with next generation content on any device, whether big, small or moving?
When working together, content and technology can create experiences that serve our local communities. We’re looking for engaging content that evolves with technology. What sort of technology are we thinking? It could be anything! TVs, radios, tablets, mobile phones, computers, wearables, VR devices, gaming systems, even an IoT kitchen sink! Or it could be something new that is waiting for someone like you to develop.
What do I need to do?
All you have to do is submit your idea that clearly addresses the challenge question. Key judging criteria will include:
- Value to Audience: How valuable is the concept to the audience?
- Value to Broadcasters: How valuable is the concept to broadcasters?
- Viability: How likely is it that this concept could support itself and turn a profit?
- Feasibility: How well thought out is the concept implementation?
- Originality and Creativity: How unique, original and creative is this concept?
Anyone who submits an entry will receive a free Core Package registration for NAB Show New York and an Exhibits Pass registration for NAB Show.
Submissions will be judged by a diverse panel of experts from the broadcast, venture capital, academic and tech industries. Submissions will be narrowed down to 10 semifinalists by the end of September. Then, a smaller panel of judges will select the top three finalists.
What if I win?
If your solution is selected as one of the top three that best addresses the challenge topic, you are a winner! In addition to prize money to help you get your idea off the ground, the PILOT Innovation Challenge winners will receive relevant mentorship, access to key broadcast executives and unmatched exposure at industry conferences.
