Entries are being accepted until Friday, October 15 at the Digital Revolutions website in two categories: amateur and professional. The professional prize is £5,000 and the amateur prize is £10,000. The entries will be judged by a panel of five industry professionals including Frank Boyd, creative director of Crossover; Heather Croall, director of Sheffield Doc/Fest and producer of Crossover Labs and Elizabeth Sparrow, president of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT.
