The Harry Otten Prize for Innovation in Meteorology is awarded every two years at the Annual Meeting of the European Meteorological Society.  This prize, financed by an endowment created by Harry Otten, the founder of MeteoGroup, is oriented towards supporting individuals and small teams that might otherwise find it difficult to secure funding that can help them move their innovative, practical concept on a path towards implementation.  The process of running the competition for the prize, and of selecting the finalists and the ultimate winner, utilizes a variety of communication methods.  This presentation will provide a summary of the process for the Harry Otten Prize competition, focusing in particular on associated aspects of communication.
