Call for entries: Frankfurt Book Fair and Goethe-Unibator announce their second ideas competition for digital publishing
For the second time, the Frankfurt Book Fair (8–12 October 2014) and the Goethe-Unibator are inviting entries to the Digital Publishing Creative Ideas Competition (#dpc14). The search is on for innovative ideas and creative approaches in digital publishing – more specifically, in the field of content production. “We’re looking for smart solutions in content production,” says Holger Volland, VP Media Industries at the Frankfurt Book Fair. “This could include, for instance, tools, platforms, services or other concepts that allow users to create, share, distribute and improve content.” Possible examples could be web supported self-publishing platforms, automated content creation, tools for user-generated content and much more besides. With the Digital Publishing Ideas Competition, the organisers want to provide a forum for unconventional thinkers and visionaries – a place where they can shape tomorrow’s content production in diverse ways and with open minds.
Idea sketches submitted should cover the following main elements:
1. What is the central objective, challenge or problem?
2. What needs to be changed or improved and how should the challenges be solved?
Format: Entries will only be accepted as PDF files comprising no more than two A4 pages printed in an 11-point typeface with line spacing of 1.5. Entries that exceed these parameters will not be taken into consideration. Please submit your ideas in English. The deadline is 15 July 2014.
