This year the nextMEDIA digital media conference is running concurrently with the Banff World Television Festival, from June 13th -16th and the strategic partnership reflects the growing convergence of digital media and technology and the traditional television industry.
nextMEDIA prides itself on being at the forefront of digital development, and identifying companies and creators on the cutting edge, through programs like their new iPad and Tablet Competition.
The free competition will give developers, producers, broadcasters and content creators a chance to submit their hottest new idea for an iPad/tablet device.
An expert jury will select five finalists to showcase their concept live at nextMEDIA and the Banff World Television Festival on June 16th. The winning entry will receive a development deal worth $25,000 to make their concept a reality with the help of leading interactive development agency Trapeze and the Toronto-based Mobile Experience Innovation Centre.
The submission deadline for the nextMEDIA Tablet Competition is May 14th – more information about the contest is available here.
