For a few years now, we've been attending and/or partnering with Midem, the big music industry conference. The same folks are now also doing MIPCube, a similar conference focusing on TV and video. We're partnering with them on their MIPCube Labs event, similar to the equivalent program at Midem, where a bunch of startups get to present their disruptive ideas, and the ones voted the best by a panel of judges will win some awards. If you're involved in an innovative or disruptive startup that is changing the face of video, TV or film, you should apply to take part
-- and hurry up since you have to apply by February 29th (I know that link says the 20th, but it's been extended!):
MIPCube Lab is the only start-up competition to be tightly integrated into the TV industry and its future. It provides a global platform for start-ups to get feedback from the most powerful and innovative decision makers in the TV business and obtain funding from the finance community.
Having seen the Midem Labs competition evolve and grow over the years, and seen lots of great companies present through there (including folks like Kickstarter and SoundCloud), these events can be really worthwhile for startups, so check it out.
