We’d like to call all the talented startups in mobile in our network in Spain to participate! Read below for details to participate to the competition, deadline is June 12!

Vodafone Mobile Clicks is an international contest to identify and develop the best, most innovative mobile internet start-ups.  Announced at The Next Web Conference in Amsterdam, the closing date for entries is midnight CET on 12th June, 2011.

Already known as the biggest start-up competition of its kind, this year’s Vodafone Mobile Clicks is open to seven markets. Any start-up in Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, the Republic of Ireland, Spain, Turkey or the United Kingdom that has a mobile site, service or application can compete for the €225,000 prize fund.

Judging will take place over three rounds. Firstly, each competing market will draw up a shortlist of their five best submissions, then a local winner will be selected. Lastly, all seven local winners will be invited to represent their country in a live final at the PICNIC festival in the Netherlands on 15th – 16th September 2011, where the overall winner will be chosen.

This year’s high-profile judges include Rudy de Waele, founder of Mobile 2.0 Europe and dotopen; Peter Barry, Head of VC and Start-up at Vodafone Ventures; Paul Jozefak, Managing Partner at Mobile VC; Reshma Sohoni, Partner at Seedcamp, and Lee Epting, Director of Content Services at Vodafone Group. Each judge will score entries based on five criteria:

  1. Originality, creativity and innovativeness
  2. Technical and operational feasibility
  3. Economic and financial viability
  4. Value to end-users
  5. The quality of the management team (e.g. their experience, knowledge, skills, relationships)

With 20 excellent nominees (5 for each competing country), the jury had a lot of difficulty to decide on the four finalists that will be invited to represent their country in a live final at PICNIC Festival, which will be held in the Netherlands on September 24th.

The four finalists that are still competing for the €150,000 total prize fund are:

Netherlands (Akvo Phone): A mobile application that allows live field-reporting for development aid project workers. Akvo Phone allows reports including pictures, text, phone identity, geographic location (GPS) and time stamp to be remotely submitted, freeing up time for field workers to get on with their jobs. Visit their website.

Portugal (Cardmobili): A comprehensive collection of membership and loyalty cards is gathered through crowd-sourcing as well as comprehensive searches of loyalty programs and then sent to the customer’s mobile phone. The digitalisation of opt-in loyalty cards, coupons and vouchers gives customers convenient and easy access to relevant purchase offers. Visit their website.

Spain (MALCOM): A mobile application lifecycle management system which is a revolution both for publishers and developers. The service – accessed through a simple web interface – takes the complexity, time and cost out of managing, updating and rolling out mobile applications, making it much more straightforward for application developers to manage their work. Visit their website.

UK (Roulette Cricket): Part of a new wave of mobile entertainment, so-called ‘2nd screen gaming’ gives fans a new way to engage with their favourite sport. Roulette Cricket is designed to be played whilst watching live sport, either at the ground, on TV or online, also allowing fans conveniently to place bets or friendly wagers via their mobile device. Visit their website.
