Though the Montreal version of Les 24h de l’innovation is organized by an engineering school – École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) – the competition is open to everyone: citizens, professionals, elementary and high-school students, associations, and college and university students in all disciplines.
There are 3 ways of taking part in the competition: register, join an existing team or create your own team.
This is a chance to share prize money. The event also features local prizes, prizes by continent, a prize for "eco-responsibility", and international prizes. You may also earn a chance to work on your project beyond the 24-hour framework of the competition. In addition, internship opportunities are offered by participating businesses.
This competition is an ideal opportunity for anyone seeking a thrilling individual and group experience and wishing to develop methods and tools to foster creativity and innovation. How? By allowing you to concentrate on finding solutions to specific challenges rather than focusing on defeating competitors.
Set your sights on a vast range of challenges
Les 24h de l'innovation gives you the opportunity to tackle non-technology-related challenges. Participating companies submit challenges in a broad range of fields. Simply choose the issue of greatest interest to you – be it social, societal, environmental, organizational, artistic, logistical or other – and come up with a creative solution.
Put together an ideal team
Each team member must play a specific role in producing the video. An ideal team has enough players on it to accomplish the following skilled tasks: project management, 2D graphics, 3D modelling, scriptwriting, narration, and editing.
