SF New Tech, the Bay Area’s largest, longest-running technology event, is partnering with Macworld/iWorld, the largest conference for those who use, create, and love Apple products, to scout out the best new apps, accessories, software, and utilities tied to Apple and showcase them at a very special event called “6 About to Break.”

The event will take place inside of the Macworld/iWorld Expo on March 27, 2014 at the Moscone Convention Center and will give the six finalists an exclusive opportunity to present and showcase their products with exposure to over 500 media and more than 25,000 attendees.

The call for submissions for “6 About to Break” starts today and contestants can enter for free. Qualified entries include any newly released software, iOS applications, iPhone or iPad accessories, or Apple utilities within the last year. Simply tell us about your amazing product(s) here for consideration. The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. Pacific on Monday, March 3. An announcement on the winners comes out Wednesday, March 12.

The six winning selections each get five minutes for a live demo and then another five minutes for a robust Q&A on stage at Macworld/iWorld on Thursday, March 27 in front of thousands of conference attendees and hundreds of media. Winners also receive a dedicated kiosk to demo their app or product during Macworld/iWorld and the opportunity to earn prizes, including but not limited to six Complete Kendo UI and Icenium full product licenses and support from Telerik. Winners also receive promotion via our media partnership with VentureBeat.

Immediately following the showcase, SF New Tech and Macworld/iWorld hosts a special reception to celebrate the winners of the event and raise a glass to all things Apple and innovation. For those applicants not selected, Macworld/iWorld offers a special rate to both attend and showcase at the conference.
