Revealed: The 20 cities Amazon has shortlisted for its new HQ

In Amazon's X-Factor-style competition for choosing a city for its new headquarters, HQ2, the tech giant has narrowed it down to a 20-strong shortlist from more than 200 entries.

Here they are:

– Atlanta, GA

– Austin, TX

– Boston, MA

– Chicago, IL

– Columbus, OH

– Dallas, TX

– Denver, CO

– Indianapolis, IN

– Los Angeles, CA

– Miami, FL

– Montgomery County, MD

– Nashville, TN

– Newark, NJ

– New York City, NY

– Northern Virginia, VA

– Philadelphia, PA

– Pittsburgh, PA

– Raleigh, NC

– Toronto, ON

– Washington D.C.

They are vying for the $5bn project in the hope that it will bring jobs and other economic benefits. Amazon has said it could create as many as 50,000 high-paying positions.

Some cities have attempted to woo Amazon publicly. In Birmingham, Alabama, giant Amazon delivery boxes were dotted across the city in a bid to tempt it to choose the location, while Tucson Arizona sent a 21 foot tall cactus to Amazon's current headquarters in Seattle.

Neither made the shortlist.
