The deadline is fast approaching for UK mobile developers to get in entries for the Vodafone Mobile Clicks competition that will see a talented idea get €150,000 to produce a new mobile site or service.
This is the first time the compeition has run for the UK, and developers have until
Thursday, 14th May 2009 FRIDAY, 22 MAY 2009.
It is an opportunity to show the mobile technology industry that Britain’s got mobile developer talent, and for last year’s winners, it was a financial and professional success.
“As a judge for this year’s Vodafone Mobile Clicks competition, I’m
very excited at the prospect of seeing what Britain’s talented mobile
internet developers have to offer,” said Helen Keegan, a specialist in
mobile marketing, advertising and media, who heads Beep Marketing and pens the blog Technokitten. “It’s a great opportunity for developers and folks with good ideas for
mobile internet applications to win the cash to deliver and develop
those ideas further. The entry criteria are straightforward and as long
as you’re over 18, resident in the UK or Netherlands and are in a
start-up or are planning to form a start-up with your idea then you
pretty much qualify to enter.”
Winners last year included:
-Nulaz, a location-based
social networking service that let’s people see where their friends are, share locations and view local
-Tipspot an events guide
-Map the Gap, an idea-sharing application for mobile phones.
