At Microsoft, we have a goal to empower every human being on the planet to achieve more. That simple philosophy shines through in everything we do, including our current partnership with the NFL.

Whether you’re a casual football fan or have a dozen Fantasy Football teams, you’ve probably seen some of the exciting new work being done this season with our partners at the NFL – from Surfaces on the Sidelines to Next Gen Stats on Xbox One and Windows 10. Together with the NFL, we’re making the game faster, smarter and more data-driven, and we believe it’s just the beginning of what’s possible when technology is introduced to the game in smart new ways.

As the NFL celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, Microsoft is proud to unveil today the first ever Imagine Bowl, which encourages fans to dream of the next 50 years of the sport. Three lucky finalists will be hopping on a plane to join us at Super Bowl 50 and one – the grand prize winner — will collect a cool $50,000.

So dream with us! Submit your creative pitch from October 1- December 1 with an essay of 3,000 words or less and/or a video that’s two minutes or less. Tell us how you would use technology to improve how we play, watch and experience the game. Submissions can focus on changing the game in one of three ways: on the field for players and coaches, in the stadium for fans or in the home for fans viewing experience.
