All that's required is for young developers to submit apps to the Marketplace and they'll automatically be in with a chance of winning one.
Not only are 100 Windows Phones being handed out, but should your app prove to be unique and of high quality you could find yourself spending the day at a Microsoft office to expand knowledge and experience with platform technicians and experts. Pretty neat, eh?

- 3 random prize draws (up to 30 x Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phones per draw).
