Are you with a startup making groundbreaking progress with smart cities? If your idea would work in Dubai, you could end up featured as a showcase at the upcoming Smart City Living Dubai conference.

A contest leading up to the conference hopes to unearth ideas that could pay off. To be considered, the idea has to be related to one of eight smart city topics: education, healthcare, the environment, energy and water, public safety, government, buildings and transportation.

And to win, the idea has to be unique, feasible, scalable, sustainable and ready to implement.

The winner gets $30,000 worth of exhibition space at the conference, as well as travel and accommodations. The entry deadline is July 31.
