The Nobel Prize in Physics was won in 2010 by Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov for work with graphene. That work has expanded and is highlighted in a Focus Forward Film, a series of short films presenting big ideas that could change the world. GE is behind the series and the winners were announced at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The grand prize was $100,000 with 2nd-5th prizes totaling another $100,000.
You can see more about the contest at focusforwardfilms.com and the videos of all 20 finalists. One of the videos was The Super Supercapacitor by Brian Golden Davis on producing and using graphene to enable our future.
The grand prize winner was the video Cyborg Foundation by Rafel Duran Torrent.
