Prizes of up to $5,000 will be awarded at predetermined milestones to Meporters who download and use the local mobile news app.

The Meporter Million Man Launch Press Pass is awarded to the first million Meporters, with cash prizes for predetermined milestones.

Our Press Passes offer more than just a badge – you can win anything from free t-shirts at the Vans Warped Tour to $5,000 in cash.

Meporter, the local mobile newsdesk for professional and citizen journalists, announced today that it is giving away cash prizes to new users in its drive to reach its first million downloads. A total of 29 prizes, ranging from $500 to $5,000, will be awarded at predetermined milestones to Meporters who download and use the app. In addition, the first million downloaders will receive a Meporter Million Man Launch Press Pass, designating them as one of the first million Meporters.

“We like to reward our users for their efforts in creating great local news content,” said Andy Leff, founder and chief executive officer, Meporter. “Giving them cash prizes is just one of the ways to do so, and it’s another aspect of Meporter that distinguishes us from other mobile apps. Our Press Passes offer more than just a badge – you can win anything from free t-shirts at the Vans Warped Tour to $5,000 in cash.”

The Million Man Launch Press Pass officially began when Meporter went live at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in New York City on May 24, 2011. To receive a Million Man Launch Press Pass for a chance to win, simply download the Meporter app from the iTunes store before one million users have downloaded it. Users will receive the Press Pass badge. Winners will be notified by e-mail personally by Meporter. Prizes will not be distributed until Meporter has reached one million downloads.
