We Are Finalists Going to Cannes!

There is a big festival every year in Cannes and we are going!

No, not the film festival, rather a global forum uniting entertainment, technology and mobile media called: Connected Creativity @ MIPTV.

Greg and I at PinkPom Digital entered one of the Content 360 competitions and were selected as one of three organizations to pitch our App to the judging panel and a live audience. The winner will receive a contract to complete development of the proposed App.

The category we applied to was:
Smartphone App for Youth engagement
The National Film Board of Canada (NFB) is looking for apps to be developed as a companions or standalone products in relation to the NFB documentaries “Sexy Inc.” and “Staying Real,” which explore sexual stereotypes and hypersexualisation of preteens and teens in media. The winning app should demonstrate that smart phones and rich media tablets can be effective educational tools while being entertaining and engaging through the use of the latest digital technologies.
Introducing Media Undone...

Wish us luck!
