[itvt] and its media relations partner, Breakaway Communications , have announced the first ? Breakaway Video Contest ,? challenging conference attendees?and anyone else interested in participating?to provide short video clips interpreting/answering the question: ? What is Interactive TV? ?

All you need to do is provide us with a video clip ? no longer than one minute ? that displays your view on interactivity. We?re looking for you to ?breakaway? and show us your unique viewpoint and creativity. High production values are not necessarily key to winning ? simply ?wow? us with your creativity. Entries will be judged based on their ability to effectively express the concept of interactivity. While entries do not need to be ?interactive? in the literal sense, bonus points will be added to those who choose true interactive approaches. Otherwise, basic linear videos are absolutely accepted and encouraged.

A panel of industry luminaries will select the most creative and thought-provoking videos as finalists, and these videos will be screened during TVOT 2011. The Grand Prize winner?who will be awarded an iPad 2, 2 tickets to TVOT 2011, and a full-blown public relations campaign? will be announced during TVOT on May 18.
