Voting ends this Friday in the Apps4Ottawa contest

Quick reminder - voting in the City of Ottawa's Apps4Ottawa contest ends this Friday, Jan 28 at 5:00pm. You can vote here.

Launched last fall, the contest encouraged residents to come up with an idea for an app to "help get more information to people where and when they’re looking for it". Prizes will be awarded in five theme categories: Having Fun in Ottawa; Getting Around; Green Environment/Sustainability; Community Building; and, Economic Development.

The top prize in each category is $5,000, with a total of $50,000 up for grab. There will be prizes for Gold, Silver and Bronze in each category, plus one prize each for best overall app, best student app and a people’s choice.

I blogged about some of the more unusual entries earlier this month. I'm still rooting for "app that displays the location of where I can warm my lunch in a microwave".
