Results of the Geo-Cosmos Content Contest and Showing of the Movies
On Thursday, October 23, 2014, Miraikan conducted the main screening of the Geo-Cosmos Content Contest--a contest for movies for the Geo-Cosmos, which is Miraikan's symbolic exhibition--and selected two first prize winners from the five movies which passed the preliminary screening.
Miraikan held this first public contest for the spherical Geo-Cosmos display to pioneer its new possibilities and expressions. With an eye to generating connections among people through the creation of contents, this contest accepted applications from people across various fields, collecting new contents that would open up a new horizon of expression through movies. Miraikan was privileged to receive so many applications for the contest.
The five movies that won prizes will be on screen at Miraikan during the Digital Content Expo 2014 (October 24-26, 2014). Moreover, they will be installed in the Geo-Cosmos as regular contents from the Earth Camp (Friday, November 21, 2014) onward.
