Inaugural 2017 NuTech Prize

It is with great pleasure that Exit International announces the establishment of a prize to be awarded to the most innovative use of technology to improve the means of providing a peaceful, elective and autonomous (DIY) death.

The US$5000 prize will be awarded at the NuTech 2017 gathering in Toronto on 28th October 2017.
There is no entry fee required, and all submitted ideas will be considered for the award.

To submit a proposal (idea, draft, concept, or prototype) you are invited to contact NuTech at nutech@protonmail.com with a short (<500 word) summary of your proposal and (if applicable) related images.

A person submitting a proposal is welcome to attend the Toronto meeting, either in person or by video link, to speak about their idea.
