The National Association of Broadcasters awarded $45,000 to the three winning ideas discovered by their first ever competition, the PILOT Innovation Challenge.
- First Place - First Place went to Robinne Burrell for “In Your Shoes,” a vitual reality series that uses VR to capture unique stories from intimate perspectives. (Check out her recent profile in Forbes here!)
- Second Place - Building off the excitement around last year’s smash hit from Niantic and Nintendo, Pokémon GO, second place winner, “History GO” was pitched as a chance to experience the history around you using augmented reality.
- Third Place - Third place went to Chandra Clark for her digital recording service “The News Call” (i.e. Tivo for news junkies).
