Dear all,

thought this might be of interest to some. Apologies for any possible cross

*International Institute of Communications 2020 Competition for Future


 The International Institute of Communications is an independent, global
organisation that brings together senior policy makers from across the
emerging digital ecosystem to explore and discuss the opportunities and
challenges that the new environments bring.

Indeed, across the industry we work in, the rapid pace of technological
change and the concurrent emergence of new user behaviours mean that policy
makers face ever-evolving challenges to permit innovation, offer protection
to all stakeholders (users and industry alike) and respond to political and
governmental needs.

The strength and value of the IIC is to offer the opportunity to learn and
share information, in an atmosphere of collaboration. This is through
access, among other factors, to the IIC’s journal: Intermedia, the website,
social media presence, global and regional events – all contributing to a
matrix of information-sharing, relationships and influence.

*What is this initiative?*

Now in its third year, the Future Leaders Competition is widening its call
for entries to reach an even wider pool of rising stars within the sector
who would not normally have access to our events. This ‘Competition for
Future Leaders’ seeks to encourage and promote original thought in the
areas of communications and policy.

*What do you need to do?*

Produce a digital report (up to 5,000 words) on the topic of ‘Is it
possible to breach privacy when there is no human in the loop?’

Some suggested areas that you might address are:

   - What does the theme mean to you? What are the policy issues that might
   be addressed?
   - What are the benefits and what might be the challenges?
   - How did your insights and your experience inform your suggested
   commentary? How did you develop, test, iterate and refine your concept?
   - Commercial awareness – does your answer make sense from a financial
   and competitive point of view?
   - Draw on relevant international examples (if applicable).

You should:

   - Demonstrate a clear point of view
   - Demonstrate awareness and understanding of contending viewpoints
   - Provide a structured, clear, and cogent position and justification for
   that position.
