Today, we opened the application period for The Mobileys, an annual national innovation competition that spotlights early-stage wireless apps, services and products that have the potential to make the world a better place.
The first place prize is $10,000, awarded to the most innovative submission that best harnesses the power of mobile technologies to create lasting social benefit. Also awarded will be a second place prize of $5,000, a third place of $2,500 and a People’s Choice Award prize of $2,500.
Eligible applicants are individuals or early-stage start-ups that have either recently launched their nominated mobile app, service or product or plan to do so within six months. Applications will be accepted through August 18, 2014 and winners will be announced in Washington, DC in October.
