NGHEROCalling all superheroes!

Can you create a “Superhero” of the future?

Looking for an exciting challenge? Well if you want to win a free ticket to this year’s WIRED Next Generation (18 October) for yourself and five friends, we have a challenge for you.

We want you to create a WIRED superhero of the future – one whose powers could solve a global problem we are facing today. Superman might be able to fly, but what about a superhero that could suck pollution from the atmosphere? Or carry water great distances in seconds to the people that need it? Your task is to create a YouTube video – no longer than one minute in length – that reveals:

  • Your superhero’s name
  • What powers they have
  • What world problem they can solve – and how
Key dates:
