Later this year Creative Space Media will play host to the MTN Business App of the Year Awards and it has issued a final call for app submissions.

There is still a bit of time to submit your app for consideration what with the closing date being 25th September but these sorts of deadlines have a way of sneaking up on you.

The awards look for sterling apps in the following categories:

  • Best Consumer Solution
  • Best Enterprise Solution
  • Best Incubated Solution
  • Most Innovative Solution
  • Best Health Solution
  • Best Gaming Solution
  • Best Agricultural Solution
  • Best Educational Solution
  • Best Financial Solution
  • Best Breakththrough Developer
  • Best “South African” App
  • Best Women in STEM Solution

As you can see, the awards don’t only look at business-focused apps. Previous winners of the MTN Business App of the Year awards include SnapScan, DStv Now and Domestly.

Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony being held at the Sandton Convention Centre on 24th October. The overall winner will walk away with a trip to Silicon Valley valued at R200 000.

The inaugural awards only drew in 50 entries back in 2011 but last year the competition proved to be fierce with some 600 entries. We suspect that this year will see even more entries so its best to get yours in sooner rather than later.
