If your start-up has been itching to open a London office -- or at least to get a British phone booth photo op -- now may be your chance to score a free plane ticket over, courtesy of the Queen. The UK goverment is sponsoring the GREAT Tech Awards to bring 5 New York-based technology companies to London for a week-long visit.

In addition to a "premium economy" plane ticket, winners will get a variety of introductions, a two-day business development program, limited legal services and company registration, and other benefits.

They'll be selecting a winner in each of five categories: hardware, education, lifestyle, finance and media. If you're interested in applying, you must be headquartered in the United States with a New York presence, have "a verifiable international client base and be ready to grow internationally," focus on technology, and have between three and 100 employees. Also, companies with a current UK presence are not eligible.

Applications are free and must be submitted by 11:55 pm EST on September 6. Winners will be announced on October 2 at the GREAT Tech Awards Gala in New York City.
