The Expert Editor has announced the launch of a new writing competition based on people’s vision for the future. The editing company is offering $1000 in prize money to the best “idea” created on Ideapod related to the theme “#2030”.
Entrants must detail their vision for the world in the year 2030, in 200 words or less. They can explore a range of topics, including technological and scientific developments, the state of humanity, the environment, and politics.
Questions entrants may want to answer include what will the world be like? What are you most excited about? What dangers does the world face? What are the opportunities? People from all over the world are encouraged to enter.
A team of high profile judges who will evaluate the ideas, including futurist.com’s own Glen Hiemstra, a world renowned Futurist; Gerd Leonhard, another leading Futurist and best-selling author; Katherine Keating, Contributing Editor to The World Post; and Amir Dossal, founder of the Global Partnerships Forum.
The aim of the competition is to stimulate debate about the future and to generate debate about what the world may look like in 2030. Entrants are only limited by their imagination and ability to creatively peer into the future.
Ideapod has been chosen to host the competition because it’s a social media platform that encourages idea-making and it will allow an unprecedented level of interaction. On Ideapod we’ll be able to view each entry as it’s posted, comment on them and establish a conversation based around the ideas. This is not only a writing competition, but the chance to create a community based on each person’s vision for the future.
