Loveland, CO– TEDxFrontRange, for its third year at Loveland’s Rialto Theater Center, introduces “Your TEDxFrontRange” – an opportunity for anyone to share their TEDx-style message with the world. Upload a video of yourself giving a TEDx-style talk or presentation. We will review all uploaded videos and post them on our website. From the videos submitted by May 16th, one video may be selected and shown at the upcoming TEDxFrontRange event on May 22, 2014.
You may choose most any topic, with just a few exceptions: no commercials, no pseudoscience, no religion, and no politics – not because these topics aren’t interesting, they just have no place in TEDx.
Make a video to tell the world about your flying office chair concept, what you did to merit a bronze statue of yourself in the town square, or how you became a successful emu farmer. We're listening. It doesn’t have to be a professional production. Use your laptop, smartphone, or hand-held video camera if you'd like.
When you’re done, simply submit a link or upload your video on our website. We’ll review it, post the best ones to our website and YouTube channel, and pick the best one to share at our event May 22.
Be interesting. Be inspirational. Be informative. Be YOURSELF! This is YOUR TEDxFrontRange!
TEDxFrontRange is supported by FrontRange Initiatives (a Colorado non-profit corporation). Our hope is to put the world spotlight on the creative potential of Loveland and the Front Range of Colorado. We seek to do so by engaging our audience with an intriguing collection of presenters, performers and TED Talks as we explore the promises, the challenges and the potential of the dynamic combination of creative potential. We’ve started the conversation and plan to keep it growing for years to come.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations).
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Two major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Long Beach, California (along with a parallel conference, TEDActive, in Palm Springs), and TEDGlobal is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.
TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily; the new TED Conversations, enabling broad conversations among TED fans; and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide.
TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
