You are here because your company is disrupting the media space in one way or another. We define the media space as the following:
"Any product or service that helps with the creation, publishing or consumption of text, audio or visual content."
Eight awesome applicants will be selected to present at the dinner/social event at USA TODAY HQ on June 16th. The benefits for making the finals are unbeatable:
-- All applicants must have a media-based technology, product, service, or are in fact, a media property such as a specialty blog or publishing site.
-- Your most recent major release is pre-release, in beta or less than a year old as of June 16th
-- Submission Deadline: 11:59pm, May 20th, 2011
-- Downselect notification: June 3, 2011 - 5PM EDT
-- Eight selected finalists
-- Presentations must be real, no power points
-- You will have seven minutes exactly to present
-- The audience will rate each presenter on a scale of 1-10 (10=highest) based on four criteria:
2. Design of your product, blog or app
3. Disruptive potential
4. Like button
We take the total weighted average of each score to determine the winners
Bragging rights and marketing power are the best award one could wish for! We also plan to present the finishers with a nice memento and will showcase your solution in our media outreach. Those not selected in the downselect process are invited to the event free of charge. A $50 value for submitting is a great start!
Program includes dinner, open bar, event and great networking!
If you have any questions please call me.
