UPDATE: Thank you for your interest in Scientific American's World Changing Ideas Contest. The deadline has passed for new video submissions.
We've had many excellent videos submitted to the World Changing Ideas contest. However, we have not had a sufficient number of entries to allow us to fairly choose a winner and runners-up in each of the five video categories, nor have we had a sufficient number of People's Choice votes to choose a People's choice winner. Therefore, we've selected one winner and two runners-up selected from among all the videos submitted. Winners will be notified on or about October 1st, 2010.
Please stay tuned for winner announcements to follow.
Scientific American is pleased to announce The World Changing Ideas Video contest, in partnership with SciVee. The contest is open to video entries about innovative ways to build a cleaner, healthier, safer world. The ideas represent a simple yet powerful vision of a better future. Some ideas may be in use now; others are emerging from the lab. For examples, see "World Changing Ideas," Scientific American; December 2009.
Deadline for submissions is September 15th, 2010. Scientific American will judge the entries (and ask our readers to pick their favorites in each category) and announce the winners in November, 2010. Winning videos will be featured in an issue of Scientific American magazine & www.ScientificAmerican.com. Videos will be judged on overall impact, scientific content, concept/originality, entertainment value, and production quality.
