Motorola launches contest MotoFWRD

MUMBAI: To help visualise the next generation of seamless mobility, Motorola India has launched MotoFWRD.

This competition challenges emerging innovators to depict - either through words or visuals - how tomorrow's society will answer to the consumer demand to live life wherever, whenever and however.


Seamless mobility is a set of solutions that will provide easy, uninterrupted access to information, entertainment, communication, monitoring and control when, where and how we want regardless of the device, service, network or location. The competition targets a diverse representation of India's best-in-class graduate and post-graduate institutions.



Motorola chairman and CEO Ed Zander says, "Through the MotoFWRD competition we are inspiring rising innovators to inspire us. The ability to dream, to imagine the possibility, is one of the greatest assets of today's youth and this program allows the next generation of scientists, inventors and designers to show us their best."

Whether using wearable wireless technology to listen to music or arming employees with tools for on-the-go office productivity, Motorola's version of seamless mobility provides fluid connections between people, things and information - at home, at work, in the car or anywhere in-between. Leveraging this information, MotoFWRD entrants will re-define wireless communications for the future.



Motorola India country president Amit Sharma says, "India boasts of a fine higher education system, at par with the best in the world. Through MotoFWRD, we intend engaging with the best minds from some of the country's leading institutions, across disciplines. We want to co-opt them in envisioning the future of seamless mobility by Motorola".

Entries will be judged by a panel that includes O&M group president and national creative director Piyush Pandey, Nasscom president Kiran Karnik and Vyas Giannetti Creatives chairperson and chief creative officer Preeti Vyas Giannetti.

College students focusing on science, technology, engineering, design, management, fine arts, writing, film and other arts and science fields can submit visual art or written entries, including essays, white papers, short stories, short films, comic strips or digital art to express their view of seamless mobility and bring the next wave of mobile connectivity to life.

Zander adds, "Motorola has a long-standing commitment to supporting education initiatives all over the world, including the Lego League in Germany, the Sci-Fun Technology Road Show in the UK and the US Mathcountsfoundation. MotoFWRD is the latest extension of the ways our company supports the best and brightest. It further underscores our confidence in and commitment to India".

The winner gets a Rs 400,000 cash prize and an eight week internship at Motorola CTO's office in the US and a gift hamper of Motorola products. The runner-up gets Rs 150,000 and a gift hamper of Motorola products. The second runner-up will receive Rs 100,000 and a gift hamper of Motorola products.

Motorola CTO Padmasree Warrior says, "Today's youth are leading the technology revolution. I look forward to learning from these young minds who bring a unique perspective to the constantly changing technology industry".

Submissions will be accepted till 28 February 2006. All MOTOFWRD rules and requirements can be found at
