With Vodafone Mobile Clicks we provide a stage for young innovative mobile internet start ups to accelerate their ideas and support them in making their next step in the mobile market.

Vodafone Mobile Clicks is an international contest to identify and develop the best, most innovative mobile internet start-ups. Announced at The Next Web Conference in Amsterdam, the closing date for entries is midnight CET on 12th June, 2011.

Already known as the biggest start-up competition of its kind, this year’s Vodafone Mobile Clicks is open to seven markets. Any start-up in Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, the Republic of Ireland, Spain, Turkey or the United Kingdom that has a mobile site, service or application can compete for the €225,000 prize fund.

Judging will take place over three rounds. Firstly, each competing market will draw up a shortlist of their five best submissions, then a local winner will be selected. Lastly, all seven local winners will be invited to represent their country in a live final at the PICNIC festival in the Netherlands on 15th – 16th September 2011, where the overall winner will be chosen.

This year’s high-profile judges include Rudy de Waele, founder of Mobile 2.0 Europe and dotopen; Peter Barry, Head of VC and Start-up at Vodafone Ventures; Paul Jozefak, Managing Partner at Mobile VC; Reshma Sohoni, Partner at Seedcamp, and Lee Epting, Director of Content Services at Vodafone Group.
