Mobile Premier Awards 2010

mpa_logo_w_091105_d1It’s that time of year again, except this time the name has been changed: the Mobile Premier Awards (MPA), née Global Peer Awards, are upon us again.

Despite the name change, the event is essentially the same: a global grassroots competition open to all MobileMonday chapters to nominate a local startup to eventually pitch in a full house of the industry’s influencers and decision makers in Barcelona, during the Mobile World Congress on February 15, 2010.

We need to pick our own “local most innovative startup”  and nominate them as one of 20 finalists. Then, an international jury of the most recognized mobile industry experts will select the 20 finalists from all the local chapter nominees to pitch at the event in Barcelona in front of investors, operators, media companies, peer entrepreneurs, and press and influential bloggers.

Any thoughts on how to select our shortlist? One possibility is to accept nominations via comments on this article but I’m open to suggestions. We’re required to close the competition by December 31st midnight local time and our submission to the competition must be made by January 6th, 2010 midnight local time.

Last year’s nomination from MoMo Dublin was Dial2Do. Who will it be this year?
