Ignite is an idea-sharing competition held in over 100 cities worldwide. These events are a venue for innovative thinkers to share their personal and professional passions, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds for a total of just five minutes.
Ignite Columbus is focused on having a fun event with stimulating presentations and rewarding the presenter’s desire to
improve the Columbus community. Applications will be submitted in one of two categories:
I) “Most Innovative Presentation” – CASH Prize - Competitors will pitch their ideas to the panel of judges for funding. The
project must benefit Columbus in some way so think public art, active transportation, or equality education but remember,
creativity is key!
II) “Most Enlightening Presentation” - CASH Prize - Competitors will teach the audience something. This category isn’t tied
to a project – it’s just supposed to be fun, educational or entertaining
A “People’s Choice Award” will also be given where audience members vote on their favorite presentation.
