*Call for entries: Frankfurt Book Fair and Goethe-Unibator announce their
second ideas competition for digital publishing*

 Frankfurt, 15 May 2014 – For the second time, the Frankfurt Book Fair
(8–12 October 2014) and the Goethe-Unibator are inviting entries to the
Digital Publishing Creative Ideas Competition (#dpc14). The search is on
for innovative ideas and creative approaches in digital publishing – more
specifically, in the field of content production. “We’re looking for smart
solutions in content production,” says Holger Volland, VP Media Industries
at the Frankfurt Book Fair. “This could include, for instance, tools,
platforms, services or other concepts that allow users to create, share,
distribute and improve content.” Possible examples could be web supported
self-publishing platforms, automated content creation, tools for
user-generated content and much more besides. With the Digital Publishing
Ideas Competition, the organisers want to provide a forum for
unconventional thinkers and visionaries – a place where they can shape
tomorrow’s content production in diverse ways and with open minds.

 “We’re delighted to be able to continue our cooperation with the Frankfurt
Book Fair,” says Professor Roberto V. Zicari, Director of the
Goethe-Unibator. “The Digital Publishing Creative Ideas Competition offers
an excellent opportunity for teams working on innovative ideas and products
to present their projects to the public.”

 An expert jury will select the five most outstanding concepts. These will
be presented prior to the Frankfurt Book Fair, in the context of the CONTEC
conference, on Tuesday 7 October. The finalists will each have a few
minutes to present their ideas to the audience, during which time they will
be allowed to use appropriate presentation tools. The members of the jury
attending on the day will then award prizes to the three best ideas.
