Public voting is now open for NYC BigApps 3.0! We received nearly 100 submissions this year, a new record. Browse the gallery to see the submissions and vote daily through Wednesday, March 8th for your favorite app to win the Popular Choice award.

As part of the City’s ongoing efforts to increase transparency in government, and to improve the quality of life for New Yorkers and visitors, BigApps 3.0 made more than 230 new datasets available from more than 60 City agencies, commissions, and business improvement districts, for a total of nearly 750 data sets for developers, available at NYC Open Data.

Thirteen prizes will be awarded in total, including two Popular Choice Application winners. Winners will receive cash prizes totaling $50,000. We’re also giving away two NY Tech Meetup demo slots, two TechStars finalist spots, and membership in the first BigApps Founders Network, to provide mentorship, networking, and business support services to help the winners get their startup businesses off the ground.
