With World Standards Day only three months away, the American National Standards Institute is calling for stakeholders to participate in the #speakstandards video competition depicting the theme: “Standards Build Trust.”
To highlight the importance of standards with a creative twist, entrants are asked to produce a 15-second video depicting an example of something that would not work or would be “less trustworthy” in a world without international standards.
In its official contest guidelines, ISO also asks participants to use social media channels through the #speakstandards hashtag, and encourages contestants to view last year’s competition winners on the World Standards Cooperation website for inspiration.
Submissions are due August 15. Click here for more information about the Standards Build Trust video competition.
World Standards Day for 2016 will take place on October 14. The U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day will take place on October 27, and will include a reception and gala dinner at the Fairmont Washington in Washington, D.C. The annual event celebrates the collaborative efforts of the thousands of public and private-sector experts that dedicate their time and expertise to the development of international standards. The event will include the presentation of the 2016 Ronald H. Brown Standards Leadership Award, and the announcement of The 2016 World Standards Day Paper Competition winners.
