> Hello,
> By now we’ve seen many apps contests, in many forms, all around world. In a way, this continuous sprawl is a success in itself. On the other hand, critique [1] related to the lack of sustainability of the apps contests is growing. There is a demand and a need to learn from each other and design better and more sustainable models for boosting the innovation around open data.
> If you are interested in making better apps contests or have other new ideas on how to boost the innovation around open data – feel free to join the discussion at the appsforx -email list [2]. The list was established after a international Apps Contest Organizers meetup which was organized during the Open Knowledge Festival 2012 in Helsinki (see also the meeting memo [3]).
> Right now I am compiling a topic report with working title: “Innovation Contests for Open Data Re-use”. I would appreciate all help in populating the listing of Apps contests [4], you can add missing details directly to the Google spreadsheet or share this email and the blogpost link [5] to relevant forums and people who might know about other apps contests.
> Best regards,
