Location-Based App Competition: Location Wild

Location Wild is a worldwide startup competition to create the most interesting location-based application in a week, starting Saturday, May 29. Developers and entrepreneurs have until the following Saturday, June 5, to submit their applications online to locationwild.com and compete for the prize of $2,500 and an iPad.

The location-based applications must use the services of either NakdReality or SimpleGeo, which both offer "plug-and-play" location technology, allowing participants to develop their applications quickly.

The judges are TechCrunch's Erick Schonfeld, Slashdot's Rob Malda, Direction Magazine's Adena Schutzberg, and The Next Web's Chad Catacchio.

"Location-based technologies are getting increasing attention worldwide, so we felt the time was right to showcase how easy it has become to create a winning startup in this space," says Paula Abrahamson, CEO of NakdReality and co-ordinator of Location Wild.

"We'd love to see something as wildly popular as FourSquare come out of this competition," she continues.

NakdReality and SimpleGeo are independent companies, but both use Amazon's computing cloud infrastructure to deliver scalable location-based infrastructure to third party developers and entrepreneurs.
