In our first Google Places API Developer Challenge, we’re inviting developers, designers and tech savvy individuals around the world to make something that improves their communities or governments by using the Google Places API. The developers who create winning applications will receive a VIP ticket to Google I/O 2013 where the app will be showcased.

You can use any platform as long as you feature and build with the Google Places API. So start channeling your most creative and innovative ideas because the deadline to submit is in three weeks on October 31st, 2012.

Enter now at to help solve some of the greatest civic challenges that we face everyday. We look forward to seeing what can happen when your imagination and the Google Places API come together.
