Competition Categories

For the 2013 Competition prizes will be awarded across four categories;
  • Best Overall Pitch

  • Best Geelong (G21 Region) Industry Pitch
  • Best Deakin University Pitch
Best Overall Pitch
The best overall pitch will win the competition. Other category winners may also win the Best Overall Pitch. Pitches for this category will be accepted nationally.

Best Sensor-based Technology Pitch
Acknowledging the plans of ICT Geelong to continue to continue to build capacity in sensor-based technologies in the region, an award has been developed for this category. Pitches for this category will be accepted nationally. Of particular interest are sensor-based technologies for human performance monitoring or improvement (ie for sport, health, rehab or medical). However, we will accept any sensor-based technology submissions.

Best Geelong (G21 Region) Industry Pitch
A prize will be awarded to the best pitch from an individual, team or organization from the Greater Geelong region - comprising the G21 representative council areas.

Best Deakin University Pitch
A prize will be awarded to the best pitch from a Deakin University staff member, academic, researcher or student. Individuals or teams making a submission should consider;
  • Submissions can be made from any faculty, research centre or campus.
  • Planned commercialisation of the project is mandatory.
  • Submissions involving Deakin University and an industry partner may be submitted into multiple categories upon approval of the industry partner.
  • Entrants may leverage off Deakin University’s IT capability (such as simulation, haptics, sensors and data analytics) for their projects.
  • All Deakin University submissions will be made available to Deakin – Commercial Research Division for further consideration.
