Active Dates (GMT):
Are you dreaming of the next great technology innovation? Got an idea for a video game you just can’t stop thinking about? Have you looked at a global problem in the news and thought you had a solution?
Then set up a camera and start talking! Young software developers around the world are asked every year to pitch their project to investors, partners, customers, publishers, and even potential teammates. It’s how you share your vision, how you persuade people that you don’t just have the right idea. You’re also the right person to make it happen.
In this Imagine Cup global online challenge, record a video no longer than three minutes in which you and your team pitch your project. You, in front of a camera, telling your story, in any of our three competition paths: Games, Innovation, or World Citizenship.
Games: Have you been dreaming of the world's most amazing game? Give us your concept! Pitch the game as though we're a game publisher. What's new? What's your game's market? What games is it like? Give us the 'elevator pitch' summary and get us as excited as you are!
Innovation: Maybe you have an idea that will shake things up. Pretend we're a group of investors. Why is your idea new? What's ground-breaking about it? How will it make money? What's the long-term plan, and what are your next steps to bring it to market?
World Citizenship: You want to change the world. Tell us about it! What's the problem you want to solve? What other solutions are out there? Who needs your solution, and why? Show us how well you understand the problem you want to tackle!
The winning team in each category will receive $3,000 (US). Ten runners-up in each category will receive a certificate of achievement and an exclusive Imagine Cup lapel pin to show the world you’re among the best.
These could be the most important three minutes of your life.
Make them awesome!
