    The Bell Labs PRIZE - Imagine The Future And We Will Help You Invent It

    Are you ready to invent the future? Think big, and tell us how you would create it!

    Bell Labs is looking for game-changing and impactful ideas that have the potential to change the way we live, work and communicate with each other. Register and enter your idea in 250 words or less. If your idea is among the top 50 submissions, you will be invited to work with a researcher to help turn your idea into a detailed, professional proposal. The final top 10 will be flown to Bell Labs to present their proposals. Three winners will receive cash prizes and will be able to pursue their proposal within Bell Labs.

    1st prize is $100k

    2nd prize is $50k

    3rd prize is $25k

    Bell Labs is looking for ideas in categories that broadly cover communications networking, such as coding, compression, cryptography, math, networks, wireless, software, sustainability, statistics, and the cloud. More details at the registration site, www.bell-labs.com/prize .
