IEC Announces New Short Video Competition on the Importance of International Electrotechnical Standards and Conformance


All Submissions Must Be Received by September 1, 2014

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) recently announced the official launch of a new video contest highlighting the important role played by IEC standards and conformance activities in a variety of essential sectors. The IEC develops standards and other related documents associated with electrical and electronic technologies used around the world, as well a suite of associated conformity assessment programs.

To enter the World of IEC Video Competition, participants are required to submit high-definition videos of no more than three minutes in length that highlight examples of relevant IEC standards and conformity assessment programs in connection with three specific areas of interest: home, technology, and renewable energy. The first place winner will receive a cash prize of 3,000 Swiss francs, while the second- and third-place winners will receive 2,000 and 500 francs, respectively. A panel of judges, including Michal Dzierza of Meehow Media and representatives of the IEC, will select the contest's first- and second-place winners; the third-place winner will be chosen based on public feedback.

To submit a video, visit the contest's official submission page. All submission must be received no later than Monday, September 1, 2014; the contest is open all members of the public, with the exception of current IEC employees.
