17-08-2015 A team of 4 from Mexico has won the first prize in the #speakstandards video competition. Their video highlighting the importance of standardized graphical symbols in our daily life received half of the nearly 6,500 public votes.
#speakstandards challenged people to imagine how much harder life would be without international standards, and capture it in a 15 second video.
The contest received more than 130 entries from around the world. Participants covered everything from clothing sizes, to interoperability of parts to efficiency and safety, and illustrated their videos with creative love stories, crazy scientists and a lot of humor. IEC, ISO and ITU selected the top 10 candidates and put them up for public vote.
