C-Prize Competition Information Evening

Free food and drinks!

Callaghan Innovation has launched their inaugural C-Prize Competition, and wants you to be a part of it!

The competition aims to boost New Zealand’s position as world-leader in the development of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technology and help keep the country's innovative film industry at the cutting-edge. The first round involves creating an initial concept, with entries progressing to the second round receiving support to develop a prototype!

New Zealand’s reputation for cutting-edge filmmaking is recognised around the world and directors are increasingly using unmanned aircraft (UAVs, or drones) to tell their stories. Combining these factors with open airspace and progressive regulations presents an awesome opportunity for New Zealand innovators to commercialise world leading UAV technology for the screen industry.

There will be prizes of $10,000 for entries that make it through the first round, and a grand prize of $50,000 plus an expense-paid trip to Las Vegas for the 2016 NAB Show!

Come along to our information evening to hear from Chris Thompson, Aviation Sector Manager at Callaghan Innovation, who will talk more about the competition and the prizes available! We'll also have free food and drinks!
