The Cell for IPR Promotion and Management (CIPAM), Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), has launched an Intellectual Property (IP) competition ‘IPrism’ for college and university students.
 
The competition, in collaboration with ASSOCHAM and Ericsson India, invites students to submit films on piracy and counterfeiting under two categories of 30 and 60 seconds.
 
Another category in the competition is for a mobile gaming app on IP. The last date for receiving entries is 31st March 2018, an official press release said.
 
Cash prizes worth Rs 4 lakh will be given to the winning teams along with mementoes, certificates and recognition on the CIPAM website.
 
The competition aims to foster a culture of innovation and creativity in the younger generation. It will provide young creators with a unique opportunity to see their creations recognized on a national platform, the release said.
 
"Counterfeiting and piracy cause significant loss to the industry and pose serious safety threats to the consumers. Generating awareness can help in tackling such crimes since limited knowledge about their adverse social and economic impact leads to circulation and consumption of pirated content and fake goods," the release added.
 
The National IPR Policy was adopted on May 12, 2016, to create a vibrant IP ecosystem in the country. Creating IPR Awareness through outreach and promotional activities is the first and foremost objective of the Policy. CIPAM, a professional body under DIPP, has been actively involved in many activities including a nation-wide IPR awareness campaign.
