DiGi's Challenge for Change

DiGi Challenge for Change is open to all Malaysians above 12-years-old to participate in two main phases of the programme:
  • Ideation challenge (28 November 2012 to 27 January 2013)
This phase calls for Malaysians to share good ideas for mobile apps that help bring Malaysians together and make life better for local communities. Ideas can be submitted online at for the following five (5) categories: 
  1. Learning Together
  2. Healthier Together
  3. Working Together
  4. Discovering Together
  5. Sharing Together
These ideas are open for public voting. The 20 most popular ideas and an additional 10 finalists selected by DiGi will qualify for a final round of judging. The top 5 winning ideas will be chosen from this pool and will proceed to the next phase, to be developed into mobile apps.
  • App development challenge (25 February to 22 May 2013)

This phase invites Malaysian developers to build mobile apps of the 5 winning ideas from the ideation challenge. Each app will then be made available for download and review by the public. The most popular apps for the 5 ideas, with the judges' final decision will win this challenge. DiGi will then market these apps on its online store, giving developers a head-start by providing direct access to our base of 5.5 million mobile internet users and the entire user ecosystem on the Google Play Store, and Windows Store and Windows Phone Store.

The Prime Minister's Innovation Award will be presented to the individual whose idea best represents the philosophy of this year's Challenge for Change in effectively bringing communities together through the power of mobile internet. The winner for this special award will be announced by May 2013, and will receive a cash prize of RM25,000.

Over RM175,000 in cash and experiential prizes are up for grabs this year, which includes:

  • RM5,000 for the top 5 idea finalists
  • RM25,000 for each of the top 5 developers
  • RM25,000 for best idea and winner of the Prime Minister's Innovation Award
