The Media Guardian Innovation Awards (Megas)

Viv Alexander

What are the most innovative apps around, either in their usefulness, popularity or novel approach?

The MediaGuardian Innovation Awards (Megas) are looking for developers to step forward now and tell them about their app of the year!   MirrorMe was last year’s winner, with an app showing how unhealthy habits could influence your future appearance. Now that our phones are more powerful than the average desktop PC or Mac was five years ago, which apps are creating a new world of on-the-go content? The awards are looking for smartphone apps only in this category.  The Mobile App category is one of the new categories in the awards whose emphasis is on digital communications and technology innovations. Along with large companies who are funding and driving innovation in this area, they also want to see entries from independent developers. It is the innovative concept that will be judged and not the big budget behind it, so this is a real opportunity for the Davids to challenge the Goliaths.

In recognition of this, there is a reduced entry fee of £50 for independent developers.  Plus there’s the early bird discounted entry fee which ends this Friday 5th November For  information on the awards and how to submit your work go to https://www.guardian.co.uk/megas
