📣 The three competition categories give all types of ideas an equal chance – whether it's about a great business venture, an amazing creative project or simply trying to make the world a better place.
The categories are:
1️⃣ Digital technology (includes ideas involving the development and application of new software or hardware);
2️⃣ Social impact (for ideas that tackle social inclusion and gender equality or target under-represented communities and the world beyond. This could be an environmental or social idea that helps those most in need);
3️⃣ Creative (for ideas for a new product, an exhibition, or a way to make the cultural environment more vibrant. Ideas that help creative people reach new audiences will also be considered in this category).
