People For Smarter Cities Video Contest – $10,000

Do you love your city? Well you should because these are the places we call home. While we all want our cities to be as good as they can be, it’s often difficult to evoke change in the community. That’s why IBM has come along with a solution that looks to change that by creating a place where citizens, city leaders and smart ideas can come together and spark positive action whether it’s about education, healthcare, environmental, energy & water, public safety, government, or transportation. Introducing people4smartercities.com.

With help from Zooppa, IBM is now looking for video entries to kickstart the project. Participants should upload videos (2 minutes or less) of success and progress in their city. Maybe it’s an idea that worked in one city and could work in another with some awareness. Or maybe you’ve teamed up with an inventor and want to showcase an inspiring idea. Here are some guidelines from the contest page:

  • Is It Visionary? Could the idea bring a breakthrough change in the way a city is working?
  • Is It Efficient? Does the idea bring immediate outcomes and return on investment for the city and its citizens’ lives?
  • Is It Actionable? Can the idea be implemented easily and quickly? Will it be universal, applicable and useful to most cities?
  • Is It Intelligent? Can we plug intelligence in this idea? Can we capture data that can enable even more improvements and further insights?

There is a $28,000 prize pool with $10,000 of that going to one grand prize winner. Be sure to check out the contest page below along with people4smartercities.com. Good luck!

18+, 2 minutes-, Deadline: February 25th 2014
