If you’ve got a suggestion for a new app, a crowd sourcing idea, a way to use open source data or a strategy for using QR codes, we want to hear about it!

How about an app that tells you where to find free parking spaces, or a digital community for gardeners who can volunteer to develop more green spaces?

The reader who comes up with the best suggestion will win a year’s subscription to Virgin Media's Premiere Collection, complete with TiVo, BT Sport, superfast broadband and home phone package.

Just tell us what your idea is and how it would make Birmingham better in less than 50 words to be in with a chance of winning.           

Entries will be reviewed by the future-gazing team at Virgin Media’s Birmingham-based innovation lab, who can’t wait to hear your suggestions on how to make the most of the city’s digital capabilities to make it an even better place to live.

Neil Illingworth, head of advanced technology and innovations trials at Virgin Media said, "We love using the internet to come up with solutions and want to throw open the floor to innovative ideas from the people of Birmingham about how we can improve anything from traffic and parking to public services and community life in the city. We’re looking forward to seeing what readers suggest to make good things happen using digital tools.”
