WIZnet, one of ARM mbed Silicon Partners, will hold an IoT Design Contest, titled “Curation is Creation” at cybermakerspace.com. IoT solutions for the contest must be designed on the ARM mbed-enabled WIZwiki-W7500 Platform.

WIZnet has been building Cyber Maker Space, unique in its kind, as an IoT UCC Platform (UCC = User Created Content). Cyber Maker Space is, in its essence, a reusable software library for developing and prototyping IoT devices. The library contains more than 2,000 UCCs. 100 UCCs are added every month.

The contest will be held from May to August 2017, with 16 prizes totaling $15,000. WIZnet expects more than 1,500 makers, including at least 500 members of WIZnet Museum, to participate in the contest.

Participants are encouraged to submit their creation early, as entries are revisable until the final deadline. This is in order to celebrate collaboration and engagement. WIZnet considers both to be the core values of the open source community. WIZnet urges all participants to strengthen the power of the community, give each other feedback, and help one another create the best version of their work.

From September to October 2017, it is open voting period. As this is a contest for all members of the open source community, WIZnet wants to give back the power of the vote to all participants. 

Please refer to CiC (Curation is Creation), the online magazine of Cyber Maker Space, for detailed contest guidelines and register at www.cybermakerspace.com to participate.
