ESRI 2010 Mashup Challenge - Map Your App Contest

With the theme "Map Your App," ESRI's 2010 Mashup Challenge invites members of the geodeveloper community to stretch their imaginations, test their technical skills and develop creative geospatial Web applications. Guidelines for this challenge are construct a mashup using ESRI’s ArcGIS online content and Web APIs, publish the related URL, shoot a video describing the application and post it on YouTube.

Prize for the first-place entry is $10,000, for second place entry is $5,000 and $2,500 for third and fourth place entries. Judges will choose top entries on the basis of uniqueness, utility, user experience and analytic process.

Michael Gould, ESRI’s director of education for industry solutions, said, “We are looking for applications that depict more than just points on a map. Online GIS is a decision-making tool and its analytic capabilities are fundamental to that process. This competition invites the world to connect new and innovative content and services to active maps.”

The deadline for submission is March 5, 2010. Additional information and details concerning the application process can be found on the ESRI 2010 Mashup Challenge Web page.
