Imagine a world where you could not access the Internet, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth, where you could not track your health on your favorite app, or where you could not find the right product with trusted quality or functions. In a world without IEEE Standards, we would not be able to enjoy the benefits of technological innovations or even live or work in a way we are used to. 

Today, there are nearly 1,200 published IEEE Standards that aim to make our lives easier, safer, and more sustainable. You may not have noticed them, but these standards touch every piece of technology you own, providing the connectivity, interoperability, and security that we live and breathe every day.

In celebration of World Standards Day 2021, IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) invites you to tell us:

What are the IEEE Standards that transform your life and work?

Submit a short video of any genre (e.g., self-recorded video, animation, documentary, music video, etc.) and tell us what you think. IEEE SA will select up to three (3) videos to receive a prize valued at $500.00 USD.

Read the full contest rules.
