Announcing TED’s Ads Worth Spreading Challenge

Winning ads in the Ads Worth Spreading Challenge will be shown at TED2011.
Today, TED announces its Ads Worth Spreading Challenge. An open invitation to the global advertising community to reinvent, inspire and engage audiences with a new definition of what video advertising can mean in the digital age, using TED.com as its platform.
