Diabetes Design Contest: Updates, Updates, Updates!

Big updates today to the …

2nd Annual DiabetesMine Design Challenge

* a competition designed to foster innovation in diabetes design and encourage creative new tools that will improve life with diabetes *

In order to spread the word about this competition, we’ve issued a press release today, highlighting three exciting changes:

* increased prize money — we now have an additional $200 donation from our friends at DexCom, along with an additional $1,000 from two anonymous sponsors who are very dedicated to supporting this cause. This brings the total prize purse to $3,200, or $1600 each for one adult and one under 18 winner.

* we’re now opening up the competition to “paper” submissions as well as YouTube videos. So if you’re not such a video whiz, all you need to do with your concept is craft a 2-3 page written “elevator pitch” plus supporting graphics, all of which can be submitted to us via email.

* extension of the submission deadline to midnight PST on Monday, June 16, 2008. Winners will be now be announced on Friday, June 20, 2008. So you have a little more time to get your concept pitch-ready and get it submitted.

For inspiration, I encourage you all to have a look at some of last year’s prototypes, designs, and ideas. We know you’re out there innovating for diabetes, so step forth and be heard (and win!)

    I have a question about the Design challenge. How can I view the contest entries from the 1st Design challenge, I am going to guess it was in 2007. The links here keep taking me to an error page.
