I got this tip off from Michael regarding an interesting contest that could get you some great recognition… and cash! Come up with an idea for a local search app, submit details, wait to be selected, submit a prototype, demonstrate it, Win!!
Some details… Citysearch and IAC are on the hunt for a killer, local mobile/web application for our site Sidewalk.com. We recently announced the launch of our “right here, right now” contest to find a brilliant idea for a local mobile/web app that focuses on making life easier. The creator of the winning application will win a $10,000 grand prize, and possibly, the opportunity to develop and manage a new business venture with up to $1 million dollars in funding and receive an equity stake in the new Sidewalk.com venture, and access to the Citysearch publisher network allowing them to instantly monetize traffic. Check out all the details on the contest at http://sidewalk.com and follow our updates at twitter.com/sidewalkdotcom
