I was at the Milia conference for the first time in Cannes, France, in 1993. Back then it was very well attended and presented great speakers (Nocholas Negroponte and others). Over the years they kept their focus on “content”. I was there three years ago again and even tough it was much smaller, great stuff was discussed as they started to introduce “mobile content”.
Last year Milia merged with MIPTV, a much larger event. This year again will have its deal of great “content” sessions.
For those of you who have innovative ideas for multimedia content and applications, BBC and KBC (Korean Broadcsating Corporation) are organising a “pitching competion”. As you see here, they’ve got it all:
If you have concepts that push the boundaries for Interactive mobile content and formats, creative solutions for user-generated content, ideas that will help web users navigate the ‘long tail’ of a broadcaster’s rich archives, innovative content or applications for DMB Mobile TV, then you should enter Content 360 – Digital Pitching Competition at MIPTV featuring MILIA 2006.
A total of 75.000 Euros will be awarded to the best 5 pitches.
