Revel: a geolocative app with an emphasis on play and public space – call for participation

PEG-LA co-conspirator Sarah Brin is one of the coordinators of Revel, “a public invitation to participate in fun, social, and adventurous challenges on streetcorners, in parks, and in all parts of town. [The Revel] iPhone app organizes missions by type and by location, deepening your connection to your neighbors and your city.” Revel is looking for creatives to propose challenges that will be incorporated into the experience. From the call for participation:

WHO CAN PROPOSE A CHALLENGE?

Everyone! We’re looking for a broad range of missions in a variety of fields. Challenges can be as simple as a set of instructions written for one person, or more complex, involving multiple people in different roles. No technical knowledge is required.

CAN I PROPOSE MORE THAN ONE CHALLENGE?

Absolutely. Submit as many as you like under as many topic headings as you like.

We’re looking for challenges that relate to the following topics: Appreciation, Exploring, Fitness Training, Neighbors & Networks, Leadership, Photography, and Storytelling.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?

Aside from excitement of giving tens of thousands of people an experience they won’t forget, there’s $20,000 in prize money available to the authors of the challenges that generate the highest number of positive experiences.

WHEN IS THE DEADLINE?

The deadline for entries is July 15, 2011. (getrevel.com)
