But with the advent of crowdfunding, people have the unfettered opportunity to reach the masses with their ideas, and find out whether their idea has merit by the response of the audience -- specifically a monetary response, backing your project so that your dream can become their reality.

(This year's trophies came from Icon Trophies and Designs.)
