It seems like RIM is realizing how key their BlackBerry 10 Jam conference will be and keep on upping the ante. They have announced yet another event during BlackBerry 10 Jam called the BlackBerry AppCircus at BlackBerry 10 Jam. The AppCircus contest has three grand prize winners who will win $25,000 to see your favorite bands (within 1 year). You need to register your application with the AppCircus by April 29th and attend BlackBerry 10 Jam to build and pitch your app.
Contestants will have the chance to tweak their apps for BlackBerry 10 and pitch them to a pantel of RIM AppCircus judges who will select the top three apps in each category: WebWorks, Adobe Air, and Native Gaming. They will then help these finalist perfect their apps to prepare for the finals which is a three minute pitch and 2 minute Q&A with winners chosen by a jury. One top winner in each category will be taking home a grand prize worth $25,000.
