Remember we told you about the App Idol competition, in which everybody from around the world is invited to submit their app idea? The competition is now open, and will be for two weeks, for entrants to submit their idea in written form, with the hope that they will be shortlisted as one of 20 finalists who will then be asked to produce a video of them explaining why their app idea should win this incredible opportunity.
For those who’ve missed the previous announcements, the finalists’ submissions will then be handed to a panel of esteemed judges, including successful young entrepreneur Chris Maddern, Locassa’s CEO Simon Lee, iPhone Life’s Editor Alex Cequea and rags-to-riches bin man-turned-successful app developer Rob Shoesmith, who will determine the final outcome. Once the winner is announced, they will begin work with Locassa in developing the app, along with the invaluable feedback and mentoring from the app entrepreneurs on the panel of judges.
The app itself will receive an enormous amount of publicity and marketing on iPhoneAppCafe.com as well as our partner sites and will be promoted to the combined social media followership of 100,000+ followers of our high profile judges; the winner will also be featured on iPhoneLife.com and circulated to their 100,000 newsletter subscribers. We wish you successful participation! For more details, click here.
