RIM announced a new challenge they are starting for developers beginning with the EMEA region. It is called “App Of The Week” and set certain criteria every week which developers can use to submit apps. If you fill the criteria and get voted in you get a prize pack along with 4 runner up prizes. They have announced the challenge for the next two weeks along with the prizes. The prizes include:
There will be one (1) first place prize (“First Prize”) and four (4) runner up prizes (“Runner Up Prizes”) available to be won each Contest Week. Each First Prize consists of one (1) 32G BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet, one (1) pass to BlackBerry Jam Europe (“Event”) and 1,000 Jam Zone points. Event to be held in Amsterdam on February 5-6, 2013. Approximate value of each Prize is 150 Euro. Each Runner Up Prize consists of 500 Jam Zone points. If a Group wins a Prize, one Prize will be awarded to the Group as a whole and the Prize will be released to the Group Leader, as identified in the registration process.
below is the criteria for the next two weeks of challenges. You can get more info here or on the main website for the challenge. I really hope they expand the rewards and challenge to make it relevant beyond EMEA.
