Apply to TED Idea Search: Latin America 2021

TED is hosting its second idea search of 2021 — this time specifically from Latin America. Applications are open to anyone living in or descended from South America, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean.

Why Latin America? TED is committed to a global mindset. We seek big, bold ideas from everywhere and aim to make them widely and freely accessible. It is with this global mindset that we are focusing on different regions of the world for the next few idea search events.

Applicants are required to create a two-minute video as a part of their submission. The deadline for submissions is July 16, 2021 (11:59pm ET). Applicants selected for round two will be invited to a virtual event to talk more about their idea and participate in a Q&A with members of the TED community. Winners will be invited to give a TED Talk, either virtually or in person.
