Want $50,000 Worth of Development for Your Brilliant App Idea?

BMW's i concept vehicles are all about efficiency and sustainability — in vehicular engineering (who knew a battery could be integrated into the chassis?), design that makes their cars look like works of art, and more. They've even been building out apps to help make your driving experience more efficient and sustainable.

Now you have a chance to see your app idea become a reality.

If you have an app idea — or even an app already in development — and it's themed around sustainability or design, send us an email with "App Challenge" as the subject line at enter@gizmodo.com. All you'll need to include is a 300-word-max description and any supporting images or videos — everything we need to get the gist of your mind-blowing app concept.

The finalists will be published on Gizmodo, and the winner will get $50,000 in services to help bring it to life — with the results unveiled at the GQ Best Stuff of the Year event.

See if BMW's i Concept site gets your creative juices flowing, then send your app idea in by 6 PM ET on August 21.
