Just this week on 10/1, some friends at MoDev announced a contest, for a chance to win cash prizes, totaling $10K. My favorite part, is that you can actually control whether or not you win, with a public vote, which will occur after the contest entry period ends on 12/31. You just have to get your friends (and their friends) to vote for your app! J Helps drive awareness for your published app & increase your downloads, but also increases your chance to win. Check out the details below.
We’re looking for those game changers, industry disruptors—denizens of creative awesome from across the developer community. We’ll award prizes two ways:
- An impartial panel of judges will pick the top three apps from among the entries and award prizes
- We’ll put the pool of entries up for a public vote, and encourage some healthy competition between entrants to promote your app and get the public to vote for you
To qualify, entrants need to submit new Windows 8 or Windows Phone apps to the Windows Store or Windows Phone Store between October 1 and December 31, 2013, and fill out the Contest Entry form. Judging and public voting will begin in January 2014, with winners announced by January 31st.
