Whatever the true origin of money is, all monetary origin stories, true or false, inform our understanding of currency.
The Future of Money Award has been running since 2009 and was created to develop links between the financial industry and creative practitioners from around the world. This is achieved by awarding the opportunity to present thought-provoking ideas to a group of financial experts and industry leaders, during Tomorrrow’s Transactions, the 16th annual Consult Hyperion Forum in London.
Arguably there has been no greater time of financial uncertainty than today and no greater need for fresh ideas and imaginative insights which help inform, suggest and question our current technological, social and cultural direction.
The competition will run in two phases.
FIRST PHASE – Initial Idea
Please submit an overview of your initial concept. Preferred format = PDF. Maximum 3 pages communicating the concept and examples of previous work (website or PDF).
Deadline for submission 1st March 2016. Send entries to firstname.lastname@example.org
SECOND PHASE – Project Development
Shortlisted entrants will receive £500 each to develop their idea and produce a short video. The videos and concepts will be presented at Consult Hyperion’s ‘Tomorrows Transactions forum,’ which takes place on the 20th – 21st April 2016.
The top three entrants will have the opportunity to present their concepts at the Tomorrows Transaction forum to an audience of financial experts and industry leaders.
