This is the fifth annual InnoCentive video Challenge with the goal of getting to know our Solvers and discovering their passions. This Challenge is open to everyone, with prizes in three categories: open, US colleges, and international colleges. InnoCentive will choose the winners based on what it feels are the best submissions matching this year’s theme. Winning videos may be used in future marketing campaigns, and the winning Solvers may be asked to participate in promotions on behalf of InnoCentive. The winning college Solvers will also be required to show proof of enrollment in the form of a letter from the registrar, as well as a school ID stating that the Solvers are full time students at the time of the Challenge deadline.
This is the Fifth Annual InnoCentive Video Challenge with the purpose of getting to know our Solvers and discovering their passions.
For this Challenge, InnoCentive seeks a video whose goal is to drive InnoCentive market awareness and present a clear call to action around our 2012 theme, Unlikely Innovation.
This Challenge is open to everyone, with prizes going to the top submissions in each category. There will be three separate categories: open, college students in the United States, and international college students. All college submissions should state which category they are in within their solution. Any submission that does not indicate otherwise will be assumed to be in the open category.
InnoCentive will select the winning videos and there will be at least three guaranteed winners, one in each category. The best video overall will win a prize of $5000. The top videos in each of the remaining two categories will each win an iPad for each member of the team, up to a maximum of five per team. Winning videos may be used in future marketing campaigns, and the winning Solvers may be asked to participate in promotions on behalf of InnoCentive.
The winning videos will be a centerpiece for driving InnoCentive market awareness and Solver/Seeker registration. They will also meet the technical specifications outlined in the Detailed Description of the Challenge.
All college students, including first-time Solvers, are invited to participate in this challenge!

What is an RTP Challenge?
An InnoCentive RTP (Reduction to Practice) Challenge is a prototype that proves an idea, and is similar to an InnoCentive Theoretical Challenge in its high level of detail. However, an RTP requires the Solver to submit a validated solution, either in the form of original data or a physical sample. Also the Seeker is allowed to test the proposed solution. For details about treatment of IP rights, please see the Challenge-Specific Agreement.
