The challenge:

Make communication (and the world) better!

Poor communication is at the root of many of the world’s problems, so our challenge is simple: help people communicate better, and hence make the world a better, happier and more peaceful place.
We communicate with each other all day long, but the methods we use are rarely the most efficient or tailored to the task at hand. What problems do you experience when communicating in your daily life?
Want to build the next Twitter? Finally track down alien life? Or how about an App that speaks to whales? Think as freely as you like. Our prize will go to the best overall improvement to communication between living beings.
P.S. Very minor bonus points may go to entries that make use of Esendex products — such as our super fast and reliable SMS and Voice API, Push Notifications service, enriched Mobile Journeys or brand spanking new SMS Surveys — although this is by no means mandatory.
