Hi MoDevs. The 2012 We Media PitchIt Challenge is open for entries - and the live finals will be April 18 at Gannett in McLean.

PitchIt helps would-be entrepreneurs turn their bold ideas for innovative digital media startups into something real.

We offer $25,000 in seed funding (with no equity involved) to each of two winners, along with online feedback and support from a global network of media, tech and social leaders, investors and digital creatives. We also connect our winners with a world-class network of mentors and advisers. The public can also comment and vote on the entries. The three ideas with the most online votes will be named Community Choice winners.

To submit an idea to the challenge or vote to select the Community Choice winners, visit the PitchIt Idea Hub:

A group of finalists will pitch their ideas live before a panel of  judges and the audience at the We Media PitchIt conference on April 18 at Gannett, Inc., in McLean, Virginia. 

We're really not looking for fully formed startups. We're interested in brilliant ideas and people who can pull them off. If you've been sketching out plans for something wonderful, powerful and world-changing - or just thinking about it - then get going and submit your idea.

We can also use your help to spread the word. Here's a line you can copy-paste and tweet or share on Facebook:

Got a big idea? Bring it to the We Media PitchIt Challenge. $50k to help turn two big ideas into something real.

Thanks - and good luck to those who enter.

- Andrew
