Along with the release of BlackBerry Messenger 6.0 comes a new category for developers to compete in the annual BlackBerry Partners Fund Developer Challenge. The new competition is for social apps in the “Most Addictive Social apps using BBM Social Platform” category. This new category is now open for submissions until September 23rd, 2011.
You can get more info at www.blackberrypartnersfund.com/challenge.
This is on top of the already heated BBM Apps Hackathon in NYC, August 11-12, 2011, and its two day BBM social platform coding marathon. You should be able to see the winners who are competing in the Hackathon at this link.
