DD30 - 12d International Innovation Awards

12d International Innovation Awards 2012 - $15,000 prize pool!

The closing date for 12d’s inaugural International Innovation Awards is fast approaching and to those who haven’t yet entered, please remember to get your entries in before Thursday 11pm (AEST) on 31st May 2012 for a shot at the $15,000 prize pool.

We have been impressed by the diverse entries that we have already received.

Recently, through many interesting conversations with users, we have realised that many of you are still unclear as to what is expected and why you should enter the Awards.

We have found that people are getting stuck on their own interpretations of the word ‘innovation’, feeling as though they have to have done something revolutionary to be eligible to enter.

An innovation (from a 12d perspective) can be:

  • a small or large project or idea
  • as simple or complex as you wish
  • any way that you use 12d Model to resolve your unique challenges
  • utilising one or multiple project disciplines local, regional or international entries are welcome
  • a small part of a project or an entire project
  • simply how you use 12d Model with its existing functionality
  • customisations to 12d Model.

You can even enter old projects, as long as 12d Model was utilised.

Finally, how your entry is presented also plays a role in how successful you may be. We have seen a few entries that were not going to be submitted, as the entrants considered them too simple. The entries that were sent through measure up well against the complex entries because of how they have been presented, and the way in which they highlight the value that 12d Model adds.

Screen shots, videos, project files and simple explanations of the background, methodology and outcomes all play a role in submitting a winning entry.

Ultimately we would like to recognise as many entries as possible through publishing them via the 12d communication channels. We would like to thank all those who have submitted their entries, thereby supporting this initiative and the growing future of 12d Model.
