Win free promotion on Mission:Explore for the Spring 2011 relaunch


Last year’s GeoVation Challenge Award winners, Mission:Explore, are offering mapping organisations the chance to create bespoke sponsored activities – find out more below.

We are offering 3 mapping organisations the opportunity to create bespoke sponsored activities on our Mission:Explore website and iPhone app for free. The winners will be able to locate their challenge in multiple locations across the UK.

Mission:Explore currently includes over 1,000 missions. There are location specific missions like ‘Share tee with the Queen‘ and anywhere missions like ‘Flash dance!‘ which is sponsored by National Geographic Education as part of Geography Awareness Week.

Missions can be located anywhere in the world and appear as sponsored by our parnters. Each mission usually costs £99 a year (much less on an ‘unlimited’ plan) and includes a bespoke activity, your logo, a link, some words about who you are and a waterproof sticker.


Above is an example from Ed Stafford and here is one from The Workshop in central London.

To win:conversation-cow

  1. Chose a single type of place (park, square, footpath, trig-point etc.) where your mission(s) will appear. You need to know where these places are.
  2. How many of these types of places would you like to locate the missions?
  3. Suggest between 1 and 5 missions that you would like to appear in this type of place. Keep these to 200 characters or less.

2. Email your idea to hello@missionexplore.co.uk before 10 December 2010. We will then choose up to 3 winners based on how good the missions are, where they would be located and how capable they are of locating them.

The winning organisations will have their missions on www.missionexplore.co.uk and the iPhone app for at least 1 year.

That’s it. Any mapping/G.I.S. expert or organisation can enter. We will be looking for mission ideas that fit in with how we do things, other than that you can suggest what you like and enter as many times as you like. Our decision is final and we reserve the right to do anything we want. Good luck!
