The C-PRIZE is an incentivised challenge that aims to advance the commercialisation of innovative technology.

The New Zealand screen industry’s reputation for cutting-edge film making is recognised around the world. International production companies seek local expertise in cinematography, digital effects, and post-production.
At the same time, directors are increasingly using unmanned aircraft to capture new perspectives and tell their stories. Combining these factors with our open airspace and progressive regulations presents an awesome opportunity for New Zealand innovators and entrepreneurs to commercialise world leading UAV technology for the screen industry.

The 2015 Callaghan Innovation C-PRIZE competition is centred around the “next generation UAV technology for the screen industry”.
