Ideas Project has launched a Nokia Lumia Start Screen Challenge. The task is to share your creativity in customising the Windows Phone start screen. Even if you don't own a Nokia Lumia you're eligible to enter. There are some awesome prizes involved. All that's required to enter is to show off your start screen and explain how your expertise have been utilised to personalise the layout to fit a specific lifestyle.
Judges will determine the winners by the design the screen and the detail provided in the descriptions. Here's what the team is wanting to know:
- Was it showing off unique design elements?
- Highlighting the people who influence your life?
- A focus on your hobbies and interests?
- Your favourite apps that help you manage your everyday life?
- Apps with artistic icons that make your Start Screen beautiful?
- Sharing your technical prowess by knowing the details behind Windows Phone customization?
If you're not sure how you can capture an image of your Windows Phone start screen, simply press and hold the Windows and power buttons simultaneously, which will then take a screenshot and store it in the screenshots folder in the Pictures Hub. You'll then need to head on over to the Ideas Project website to submit the screenshot, aong with the in-depth description about how the start screen is unique to you.
But what about prizes? The team will be handing out both a Nokia Purity HD Stereo Headset by Monster and JBL Powerup Wireless Charging Speaker to the top 10 most compelling entries. Be sure to read the terms and conditions before looking to enter. You have until May 8th to get your entries in. If you're looking for a location to see what other Windows Phone owners have managed to create with the start screen, remember to head over to MyTil.es to see some examples.
