    Enter the Create for Millions contest

    Enter the Create for Millions contest: Over 1 million euros in cash and prizes


    To support Nokia’s new strategy to deliver phones and services for the next billion, the company has just announced the Create for Millions contest. Submit your best Series 40 Java or web apps, and you could win your share of 1 million euros’ worth of cash and prizes.

    Developers may submit Series 40 and web apps in any of four categories:

    - In the Know: Apps that focus on news and local information.
    - Fun & Games: Entertainment and gaming apps.
    - Emotional Closeness: Social networking apps.
    - Access to Knowledge: Apps the help consumers improve their lives – education, health, etc.

    Within each category, there will be 10 cash prizes, with a top prize of 50,000 euros. These winning apps also will be promoted by Nokia in several venues, including online, social media, and newsletters. In addition, the top app in each category will receive both a free user experience (UX) consultation from Nokia and support from a design agency to create promotional banners.

    Three special prizes will be awarded, too.

    Any ideas why during the registration in the Country drop down box some countries are missing (like France, Poland, Spain)?

    You can select "European Union", but it's weird as other EU countries appear in the list. Also, it says there are 10 prizes per category but it's only announced the 50.000 € prize for the 1st in each category, what about the rest? There's nothing even in the T&C document.

    Hi there!

    Now there must be something wrong with the country list, thats a certainity. I could not myself even found FRANCE, which as a country is the founding member of European Union.

    I have reported this case further.

    Sorry for any inconvenience!

    Best,
    Marko

    Re: Enter the Create for Millions contest

    I tried accessing the site : http://www.developer.nokia.com/create4millions/
    where it mentioned about using MAPS/Location API via a hyperlink : https://projects.developer.nokia.com/LBSPJME/wiki
    The link does not work. Can you please provide the correct link for the Java ME Location API - LBPSJME (this link is apparently referred to from various other places in Wiki such as : http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...E_Location_API)

    Since I am planning on create a location based app, this information is something that would be needed to proceed. Thanks in Advance.

    Re: Enter the Create for Millions contest

    I've just got an e-mail from Nokia Developer saying the deadline for the Create4Millions contest was extended, but the official contest page still shows september 20th as the deadline.

    Can you confirm ?

    Thank you.

    Re: Enter the Create for Millions contest

    Hi,

    Could someone from Nokia clarify the below:

    I noticed that in the create4millions contest page, it is mentioned that Java or Web apps can be submitted for all the categories except under the "In the Know" category where it says "- we're seeking your Series 40 web apps focusing on news and location-based information." .Does this mean native java apps cannot be submitted under "In the Know" category ?

    Also earlier it was mentioned that under special Java prize will be based on "best use of Maps/Location API" and now it has changed to "best use of Location API".
    Are both the same and if not what is the difference ?

    Please clarify.
    Thanks.

    I would like to take this opportunity to ask my question about the contest.
    Application/game uploaded to Ovi Store could be free or paid?

    'Create for Millions' contest

    Hi,
    I’m trying to register for the 'Create for Millions' contest, but I’m not sure my app is eligible, since it supports only a few S40 devices (just the touch 240x320 devices).
    Anybody knows the criteria for joining? Is there a minimal support requirement?

    Thanks.

    If you have an app(s) to submit that is compatible w/ Nokia Series 40 touch-enabled devices, then that is great. Please plan to enter the contest - and good luck!

    Um, well and if it's not Flash Lite of course, that would make it too easy to develop cool things for the competition.
