I’m always so impressed by the Apps For Good Awards entries, so I was pleased to see that the 18 finalist teams have been announced by the judges.
All of the teams have been invited to a final Dragon’s Den style round of judging at the Barbican Centre, where the panel will select the winners on 23 June.
The winning teams then work with development agencies to launch their app on the market, with the support of Apps For Good and its sponsors.
Finalists are also up for the People’s Choice Award (PCA), which is decided through an online vote.
Winners of the PCA also have their app developed and launched to market. Voting for the PCA takes place on the Apps For Good website 11-23 June.
The Finalist teams are:
