About the Challenge









2 days until challenge opens
(view all dates)






The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is challenging innovators to
create solutions that will block illegal robocalls. These solutions
should block robocalls on landlines and mobile phones and can operate on
a proprietary or non-proprietary device or platform. Entries can be
proposed technical solutions or functional solutions and proofs of
concept.

The vast majority of telephone calls that deliver a prerecorded
message trying to sell something to the recipient are illegal.´╗┐ As
technology has advanced over the years, so have the number of illegal
robocalls.

The winning solution will win $50,000 in cash, as well as
opportunities for promotion, exposure, and recognition by the FTC.
Solvers will retain ownership of their solutions. Companies with over 10
employees will be eligible to compete for the Federal Trade Commission
Technology Achievement Award´╗┐, which does not include a cash prize. For
more information about prizes please see the Official Rules.
