Google partners with the Indian Prime Minister’s Office for an app contest

PMO India

If you’ve got ideas about how Indian citizens should be able to connect with the Prime Minister, now’s your chance to bring them to life.

Google and the Indian government have launched a contest to create an app for the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). Participants can sign up to suggest ideas or register a developer team to create wireframes for them.

The five developer teams with the best mockups will be invited to build their ideas with mentorship from Google. The winning app, chosen by an independent jury, will become the official app of the PMO.

The successful team will also get to visit Google’s US headquarters. Meanwhile, individuals deemed to have submitted the best app ideas will win an Android One device.

About half of India’s internet users access it only via mobile devices, so it will be interesting to see what kind of ideas this contest provokes.

You can enter the contest on India’s MyGov site. The closing date for entries and voting is March 12.
