Entry Fee: $1150
Work that makes you rethink how things can be done, work that points to new ways forward, ideas that move away from the status quo. Work that raises your eyebrows and makes you question.It could be a social wave, a new methodology, or a new business model. Work that uses a different approach, it can be new technology or a new use of technology; a new platform or using an existing platform in a new/different way. Anything that symbolizes the future and pushing the boundaries. Entries do not have to focus on Advertising but rather creative solutions.

Products and Services:

1.Augmented Reality:Digital Experiences that combine live action imagery (either through a camera or direct sight) with CG imagery (such as an overlay or a manipulated camera feed) in either a practical, useful or creative fashion. This could be in any medium, such as a mobile device, computer device or live experience. Entrant needs to provide a case study that explains the concept and thoroughly conveys the actual AR experience in detail as the user would experience.
2.Best Use of Real Time Advertising
3.Brand Action:Brand actions are activities that may inform advertising but are distinct from it. Programs such as Small Business Saturday, real work stunts like Red Bull Stratos, PR stunts like McWhopper, and one-offs such as REI OptOutside are examples.
4.Creative Technology:Technology deployed in creative ways. The technology can be used to facilitate the telling of the story, or be the story itself. The jury is looking for clever and innovative uses of creative technology often in artistic ways, whether they be new ways of using old technology, or new technology used in a unique, innovative, groundbreaking fashion.

6.Experiential:Live experience
