It's times like these I wish I knew how to create apps. Unfortunately, I couldn’t code my way out of an Altair 8800 if my life depended on it. But if you find yourself being savvy with Visual Studio, C# and the rest of the development skillset needed to create winning Windows Phone apps you might be interested in this contest.
Nokia Create is a just launched contest to develop for Windows Phone. There are various prizes throughout, but you’re going to want to read on for the details for the grand prize winner. Nokia will make you very happy.
Nokia Create is a global competition, available from Timbuktu to Shangri-La. All you need to do is have the development chops to create apps for Windows Phone and Nokia Lumia. The last contest, Nokia Future Capture, was centered on imaging and their recently launched Lumia 1020. This contest however, has 8 different categories. So it doesn’t matter if you have gaming skills, imaging skills, or location skills.
The 8 categories are as follows:
- Image & Photo
- Maps & Places
- Fun &Games
- Work Life
Basically, if you can develop for Windows Phone, there’s bound to be a category above that could interest you. And it’s a contest worth entering. Grand prize winner will get an all-expenses paid trip for two people to Mobile World Congress 2014 (we'll be there too!). The winning app will be showcased at MWC. Additionally, a video will be produced highlighting the app that will be spread through the various Nokia Developer channels. From there the app will be heavily promoted across a handful of Nokia social network accounts. That same winning app will get four weeks of promotion on the Windows Phone Store and App Social. And finally, the winner gets 10,000 http://www.windowscentral.com/tag/app-socialeuros to use on PubCenter to run their own campaign.
And of course, there are various levels of prizes and mini-contests within the overall Nokia Create challenge. It’s worth hitting up the source link below to read the fine details and see the various prizes you can win throughout the contest, which runs until December 5th.
