Call for Mobile Entrepreneurs:VentureBeat invites coolest iPhone and BlackBerry developers to submit entries

The good folks over at VentureBeat, one of the leading sites for news about Tech, Money and Innovation, are organising their annual MobileBeat event in San Francisco on the 16th July, with the theme of 'It's the Application, Stupid' (love the title).

They are now calling for submissions from mobile entrepreneurs worldwide to enter their TopStartup Award and get a chance to pitch their idea in front of over 400 leading industry experts, execs and VC's.

Last year over two hundred companies were considered for the awards, which went to firms such as AdMob and Loopt. This year the competition shifts to mobile applications and services, with 50 finalists to be determined and a final 14 to present live at MobileBeat on Thursday July 16th.

Startups must complete and submit the following form by June 30, 2009 for consideration-so apply now if you are interested (you should be) by clicking here.

Some rules:

-Fifty finalists will be announced on July 2nd on Voting will then be open to the public to select the top seven companies per sector.

-Seven finalists from each category will present for five minutes each to the MobileBeat audience determined by judges as to avoid any vote manufacturing.

-Nominees must be younger than three years old. Special consideration will be given to companies that are launching for the first time.

Have a cool iPhone, Android or Blackberry app? Why not go for it-it could be your lucky break!
