Contribute and Win is a Wiki Contribution competition being run in conjunction with the Series 40 webinars on Marketing in a Box (MiB), which run on 21 January (8 a.m. San Francisco; 10 a.m. Mexico City; 4 p.m. London) and 31 January (8 a.m. London; 1:30 p.m. New Delhi; 4 p.m. Singapore). For this competition we are looking for you to share, in a wiki article or articles, your experiences with creating MiB assets and marketing your apps.

For up to two great articles there will be a pair of phones, a Nokia Asha 311 and a Nokia 808 PureView up for grabs and a number of high-end phone accessories for the runners up. All you have to do is attend one of the webinars and submit an article by 31 March 2013.

As this is a Wiki Competition, entries will be in the form of original articles, tutorials, and guides to showcase the new opportunities for developers created by MiB.


How to participate

First, visit the Marketing in a Box (Beta) page and check out the resources available. Next register for and attend one of the MiB webinars, sessions are available on 21 January (8 a.m. San Francisco; 10 a.m. Mexico City; 4 p.m. London) and 31 January (8 a.m. London; 1:30 p.m. New Delhi; 4 p.m. Singapore), to find out more about how to use the resources and tools. Then either apply the marketing guidance or create a marketing asset such as a YouTube video or web page.

When you're ready, write a great tutorial, guide, or article that explains how you applied the guidelines or created and used a marketing asset. We're also particularly intrested in the lesson learn and how these could be applied to improve MiB - we will be listening.

Here are the competition rules:

  • you must attend one of the Series 40 webinars on MiB.
  • the article and resources are submitted to the Nokia Developer Wiki under the site's Terms & Conditions.
  • articles must be written in English. Translations may be provided in other languages, but only the English version will be judged.
  • the article should include the text: {{Note|This is a community entry in the [[Series 40 Webinars - Contribute and win with Marketing in a Box]] competition.}}
  • add a comment to this competition page linking to your entry.
  • you can create one or more articles, however only one prize will be awarded per person.
  • articles must be submitted before 23:59 GMT on 31 March 2013.

See the fine print for more information.

The prizes

We'll be selecting up to two (2) overall winners, based on the quality of entries. Each selected overall winner will be sent a brand new Nokia Asha 311 and a Nokia 808 PureView.

Runners up will receive high-end phone accessories.

Where legal restrictions prevent the drawn prize being delivered, an alternative prize will be awarded.

In addition, remember that winning a Nokia Developer Competition gives you instant fame and kudos in the community and promotion through the wiki and our social media.

Evaluation of entries

Entries will be judged on their insight into the use of Marketing in a Box, their practical use in the "real world", and/or how comprehensively they cover their topic. As usual, we'll also be considering the usefulness, quality, and presentation of information. Multiple entries are encouraged, but will be assessed on their individual merits — so a single great entry will win over multiple less-impressive articles.

The entries will be judged by selected Nokia technical experts at the end of the competition. Typically, results are posted within a week of the end of the competition.
