As you might have seen, Telenav kicked off its first OSM editing contest last month and I’m excited to announce that the contest was a great success, with nearly 190K edits made over the course of the month. I’m also happy to announce that “bdiscoe” is the winner of the contest (with 145,713 points/47,563 edits total) and is now a proud owner of a brand new tablet. Congratulations, bdiscoe!

Thank you to all of the editors who participated in our first contest. If you didn’t win this time, we would like to give you another chance …

We’re now announcing a new contest, which kicks off tomorrow (March 12) at 9am PT and will run until 11:59pm PT on April 11. We will announce the winners at the State of the Map conference in Washington D.C.

This time, the prize will be much bigger! We are going to give away round-trip airfare, lodging, and admission for the winner to either the (1) State of the Map Conference EU in Karlsruhe, Germany, June 13- 15, 2014 or (2) State of the Map 2014 Conference in Buenos Aires, Argentina, November 7-9, 2014 (up to $2,500 value and the winner can decide which event he or she would like to attend). At the end of the contest, we will also randomly select another winner from the rest of the participants who will win a new iPad or Galaxy Note (their choice).

For this contest, we will be requiring editors to use MapRoulette and please note that you will still need to sign up on our contest page in order to register for the contest. Registration and all contest details will be available on this page beginning tomorrow morning.

Thank you again to all participants! We look forward to another successful contest. See you at SOTM US in DC!
