This year’s BigApps competition is kicking off right now in New York City. The competition challenges developers and designers to create applications that help the city tackle big issues, help make people’s lives a little better, and help people engage in the city around them.

For this years challenge, the City has opened some great new datasets and has even expanded the rules of what you can use to participate on the challenge. As part of that expansion, CartoDB is now one of the official APIs and developing your app using CartoDB qualifies you to enter into the competition. We would love to see one of you win any of the great prices.
