ARE YOU THE NEXT BRIGHT IDEA CHAMPION?

The Next Bright Idea is Enderun Colleges’ business pitch and multimedia arts competition for young aspiring entrepreneurs and creative thinkers.

Do you have what it takes to be The Next Bright Idea Champion?

The Next Bright Idea is Enderun Colleges’ business pitch and multimedia arts competition for young aspiring entrepreneurs and creative thinkers. It aims to generate breakthrough business ideas and showcase emerging creativity that will be presented virtually to a live audience and a panel of judges. On its tenth year, The Next Bright Idea is welcoming once more high school students from Grades 10 to 12 to present their entrepreneurial ideas and art concepts. Winners will get a chance to take home Php 50,000 for the grand prize, Php 20,000 for the first runner-up, and Php 10,000 for the second runner-up.

A pitch is a concise presentation that outlines an idea of a new product or service to a potential investor. It’s basically delivering a business plan verbally. The goal is to convince a venture capitalist that your business idea is worth investing in, feasible, and effective.

On the other hand, art competitions signify an individual’s interpretation of life through creativity and imagination. It’s an approach artists use to illustrate their artistry or craftsmanship to stimulate the many views of humans in depicting and understanding the world around them.

Business Pitch Challenge

Art is critical in the development of new ventures and business models. Businesses and enterprises are investing in future-proof professionals who are capable of providing creative and innovative solutions to help organizations improve their operations and develop new expertise.

Participants of The Next Bright Idea 10 must delve into the commercial side of the creative industry, particularly in terms of materials, products, platforms, technologies, or talent management. They must identify pain points in the creative industry that they can address with their startup idea. Participants will be on the lookout for issues that people in this discipline encounter and will develop innovative solutions to these challenges. Thus, this year’s theme is entitled, “Art in Business, Business in Art.”

Multimedia Arts Competition

Various difficulties have engulfed the world in ways we could not imagine. When we were hit by the pandemic, which dramatically worsened the situation globally, it became much more difficult to bear. Amid all these, Filipinos remain resilient and seek new opportunities in the face of adversity in order to survive.

Participants of The Next Bright Idea 10 must become a beacon of hope in these trying times. They should be able to use multimedia arts to convey strength, encouragement, and security within the community. Participants will be using self-expression and inner creativity to portray their aspiration. That’s why the theme for the competition is entitled, “Creating a Better World for Filipinos through Art.”
