Bing Map Competition

Bing Map Competition

Microsoft has launched a new competition for the best new applications developed using Bing maps.

But those EU antitrust battles must have really got their teeth into the software giant, because the top prize is just US$1000.

And applicants should be aware they are granting Microsoft an “irrevocable, royalty-free, worldwide right and license” to use, review, assess, test and otherwise analyse their entry and all of its content.

Contestants need to use the tools available in the free Bing Map app software development kit to create a “compelling and useful” application that works in conjunction with Bing maps.

Entries will be published online as they are submitted before the deadline on 25 July 2010. Each eligible Map App will be rated by the highest daily usage level during the first half of August, and winners will be announced following this time.

The Bing Map development kit can be downloaded here.
