Floating island contest launched in Pacific
Quoting Radio New Zealand – 28 June 2018
“A group behind plans for a floating island in the Pacific have launched a competition to find a government willing to host the project.
“An initial deal for the man-made island in French Polynesia appears to have run out of steam although backers have said some mayors in the territory were still keen.
“Blue Frontiers is offering $US100,000 in prize money to "startup society entrepreneurs" for securing a concession from a host government.
“Information on its website requires contestants to submit an invitation letter from a government official along with photos and video of the proposed site.
“The prize money will be awarded once the pilot project is built, according to the information.”
