Please vote for us to win an iPhone AppPenn Museum hopes to go mobile in order to extend our mission beyond our walls, and beyond our existing social media platforms. An iPhone app will serve to "curate" the visitor experience and make our window on the world a bit more transparent. With a collection of one million objects, over 400 research expeditions around the world, an active events schedule, countless conservation projects, myriad archaeology and anthropology exhibitions, the app will put the world in your pocket.

The proposed iPhone app will make available free podcasts and videos of lectures, digitized collections, and archival materials from our 120 year history in some of the most important excavations around the globe.

The 2010 ici iPhone App Award for the Mid-Atlantic Region will award a custom iPhone app, valued at $50,000, to a nonprofit cultural organization in the Mid-Atlantic region. We will develop and publish the iPhone/iPod Touch app using the ici mobile platform.

Eligibility: Nonprofit arts and cultural organizations operating in the Mid-Atlantic region (defined as the states of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC) offering publicly accessible programming or services.
