Get your creative juices flowing, because Aflias Limited has announced a contest that could make you the lucky creator of a new top-level domain.
The Internet registry services provider Aflias Limited, has announced the “Aflias Global Innovation Contest for New TLD Ideas” to generate ideas for new top-level domains. The contest is designed so that organizations will consider all the possibilities for new TLDs under the approaching ICANN New TLD program.
Aflias is looking for unique ideas from participants of this contest, whether it be a “dot brand,” “dot niche” or a “dot city” domain, the objective is to discover ideas for “right of the dot” domains that can’t be done with today’s existing domains like .com or .net.
“Technology visionary Alan Kay once remarked, ‘The best way to predict the future is to invent it,’ and that is what our contest is helping to do: invent the future,” says Roland LaPlante, CMO and Senior Vice President of Afilias. “We’re excited to see what powerful ideas people have for new TLDs. The right TLD can change the Internet — and the world — as we know it.”
Participants to the contest must be at least 18 years old and need to submit their idea in English via the official contest website by October 17th.
First prize participants will win $5,000, while second place wins $3,000 and third place wins $1,500.
