The NAB phrased the challenge in the form of a question: “How might local television and radio broadcasters engage their communities with next generation content on any device, whether big, small or moving?” The competition was open to all — “entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and creative thinkers.”
The first place prize is $20,000, with $15,000 for second and $10,000 for third. The winners will be selected by a panel of judges and announced at the NAB Futures conference, Oct. 31, Pebble Beach, Calif.
The finalists are: Broadcast Us; Chapters; GeoTunes; gNews; History Go; In Your Shoes; Story Builder; Lokita; The News Call; and You Win.
