XPRIZE Invites Innovators to Design New Series of Competitions

The XPRIZE Foundation announced an open call to innovators around the world to help it design future XPRIZEs in five key areas: off-grid energy for the developing world, saving coral reefs, disaster prediction, lifting farmers out of poverty and feeding the next billion. For the first time, XPRIZE will use the HeroX crowdsourcing platform to source hundreds of XPRIZE designs, and submitting teams may be selected to ultimately compete to further develop their concepts for future XPRIZEs.

Teams entering the 2018 Visioneering Prize-Design Challenge will have the option to watch a video on designing an XPRIZE taught by Peter H. Diamandis, XPRIZE founder and executive chairman, and then submit their detailed prize design entry. Their entry will include their proposed name of the prize, the prize purse, the detailed competition rules and much more. Teams can enter as many times as they wish. Entries from around the world are encouraged and prizes total more than $100K.
