Vodafone Mobile Clicks Competition Opens With €225,000 Prize Fund for Mobile Developers

Vodafone Mobile Clicks Competition 2011

Thanks to our friends at Momo London for the heads-up that applications are now open for year's Vodafone Mobile Clicks competition. 

The competition is open to startups from seven countries (Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, the Republic of Ireland, Spain, Turkey or the United Kingdom) and has a rather juicy €225,000 up for grabs for the leading mobile site, service or applications.

Judging takes place over three rounds with the seven finalists, one from each market, competing live at the PICNIC festival in the Netherlands. Entries are judged on the following criteria:

  1. Originality, creativity and innovativeness
  2. Technical and operational feasibility
  3. Economic and financial viability
  4. Value to end-users
  5. The quality of the management team (e.g. their experience, knowledge, skills, relationships)

The competition is pretty much string-free, although you'll signed up for publicity if you win, with no claims on the IP or strings on the cash if you win.

The closing date is midnight CET on 12th June 2011. The Momo London blog has an excellent summary of the competition and entry criteria.

Good luck! Let us know how you got on.
