  • Sign up for DreamSpark, get Expression Studio (free of charge for students from the DreamSpark site) and the Sketchflow Template for Windows Phone
  • Create a Sketchflow prototype of your app idea and post the prototype online
  • Tweet out the link to your prototype using the hashtag "#wpappitup". For example, "Check out my idea, UltimateApp, at http://www.findyourcolony.com #wpappitup"

Two winners have been announced already; Johnny Simmons with GPSTreasueHunt and Carlos Barreto with LevelThroughCamera. Be sure to check out the rules (opens in new tab) for the competition and note that this is not available for those who reside in Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria.
