Location Innovation Awards

The Location Innovation Awards are off to a great start. So far we have had 18 entries in only 3 weeks which is wonderful.

Over the last 2 weeks we have presented to ITC students at Massey Unversity, Raffles College and the Axcel Institute and in each case students were told that they can use their entry as part of their university assignments, which is fantastic. It gives students several opportunities.

  • The can create the future technology they would like to use
  • Use the skills and technology they have studied
  • Gain experience with new tools and concepts
  • Win great prizes including a trip to the 2009 Where 2.0 conference in San Jose where they can mix and mingle with industry leaders such as Google and Yahoo
  • Gain recognition and future career opportunities
  • Potentially create an business for themselves commercialising their ideas

As well as the main prize and four category prizes, we are also offering 3 prizes for the best student entries. There are no age requirements so entries will also be accepted from secondary or other school students.
