Pitch Your Own Idea

On Wednesday, you can submit your idea for a project, product, service or campaign that uses open data for development.

The jury will select six ideas to be presented on the Open Stage, at the end of Thursday: if your project is selected, you have 5 minutes to pitch your idea, and then answer questions for a few minutes.

The best contributors will win a ticket to the Open Knowledge and Data Festival in Helsinki (Finland) in September to present their idea.
