What is Media Range MAGIC(TM)?

Think about the new generation, the young and upwardly mobile;

Think about the driving force of the future;

Think about what shapes and will continue to shape man's desires, aspirations, hopes and dreams through the years to come....

They will be bound by technology expressed in Mobile, Automation, Gadgets, Internet and Connectivity.

This is the MAGIC that will shape the ages to come.

Media Range Limited is interested in supporting the steps being taken by indigenous talents in these fields and as part of that interest will be running an annual award and exhibition fair.

The categories:

Mobile: Innovations that affect the nature or application of mobile devices and mobile data transmission

Automation: Innovations that affect the use of various control systems for operating equipment such as machinery, processes in factories, etc, leading to minimal or reduced human intervention.

Gadgets: Innovations related to the creation of novel tools with particular utility functions.

Internet: Innovations that leverage on the Internet.

Each year, at MEDIA RANGE MAGIC(TM) at least three outstanding inventions that have the capacity to impact society will be identified and provided a soft grant to enhance their market-readiness through further development (where necessary), marketing, sourcing for additional funding and publicity.

    - Judges
    A team of 10 judges drawn from science and technology institutes across the country as well as local and international technology companies will be set up to shortlist and select the winners over a three-phased process.

    - Grant administration
    A project team will be constituted that will oversee the administration of the grant to ensure it impacts the winning projects and our brand maximally.  The five-man team will be made up of one member from government and four others from the technology/manufacturing/business communities.



Submission of entries will commence on March 1, 2016 and close on April 29, 2016.
