The Big Idea Challenge video pitch competition encourages young people from programme countries to develop an innovative ‘startup’ and tell the world about it. 

The three competition categories give all types of ideas an equal chance – whether it's about a great business venture, an amazing creative project or simply trying to make the world a better place. The categories are:

  1. Digital technology
  2. Social impact 
  3. Creative 

We've had hundreds of ideas come in and it was really difficult for our judges to narrow this list down to 63 finalists – including nine teams from Ukraine. Now it's your turn to make a difference – take a look at the finalist videos and vote for your favourite idea.

Please note that you will be able to vote for only one idea, and all votes after that first one will not count.
