Get creative with an SD phone app!
Looking for a way to have your voice heard? Feel like you have a great idea for improving the city and just don't know how to get it out there?
Join the AT&T San Diego Apps Challenge and enter to win up to $50,000 in cash prizes.
Mayor Sanders and the City of San Diego are challenging the software developer community to create new apps using city and partner data. They’re also inviting the public to share their ideas for innovative new apps.
Winners will receive $50,000 in cash prizes as well as promotional exposure. Prizes will be awarded for apps that enhance city services and quality of life for San Diegans, and that use the data in innovative ways. Submitted apps can run on the web, desktop computers, tablets, or smartphones. The public is encouraged to share application ideas related to energy, tourism, economic development, transportation, the environment, health and other areas.
The public will have one month to share ideas for San Diego apps they’d like to see created. Developers will have approximately three months following the challenge launch to build their submissions. A panel of distinguished judges from the tech industry, venture capital, and partner institutions will select winners, and the general public will vote to identify two “Popular Choice” winners.
*Stimulate the creation of innovative apps that enhance city services and help San Diego residents, businesses and visitors.
*Raise awareness of City of San Diego and partner data resources, and engage the public and software developers to help the community.
