An annual software competition for individuals or companies to develop online and mobile applications that utilize official City datasets.
New York City is going big with the launch of NYC BigApps 2013, the fourth annual BigApps competition to promote government transparency and innovative new technologies, at an exciting New York Tech Meetup event. This year, in conjunction with DoITT, and in partnership with BMW iVentures, we are challenging mobile and web developers to create cool, free apps for New Yorkers.
This year’s cash awards total $150,000. The Grand Prize winner for NYC BigApps 2013 is eligible to win up to $60,000!
This year, NYC BigApps is tapping the best and brightest minds to work together to help solve major challenges - or as we like to call them, BigIssues - affecting New York City residents, visitors, and businesses. We’ve selected four focus areas for the 2013 competition and invited experts to develop problem briefs that vividly describe BigIssues within each category.
