Every app you submit should deliver a great UI that complies with the full-touch UI guidelines.

Making use of the features of Marketing in a Box — to drive downloads and gather reviews and star ratings — won’t hurt your chances of winning a prize either.

Publish and Win is a competition running in conjunction with the 2013 Series 40 Java and web apps webinars during January, February, March, and April 2013. The goal is for you to show us what you have learnt from the design and technical webinars we ran during 2012 and have planned for you in the first four months of 2013.

In May 2013 the developers of up to three winning applications will receive a Nokia Asha 311 and a Nokia 808 PureView and up to twenty developers will receive a Nokia Store spotlight package or $100 NAX credit.

Every app you submit should deliver a great UI that complies with the full-touch UI guidelines. Using one or more of the other technologies we cover in a webinar, such as advertising powered by NAX, will be an advantage. Making use of the features of Marketing in a Box — to drive downloads and gather reviews and star ratings — won’t hurt your chances of winning a prize either.

How to participate

First, register and attend one of the Series 40 Java and web apps webinars in January, February, March, or April 2013. Then create one or more new Java or web apps, and have them published in Nokia Store before 23:59 UTC on 14 May 2013.

Here are the competition rules:

  • you must have attended a webinar before 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2013 to have the opportunity to enter.
  • submitted applications must be for Series 40 Developer Platform 2.0 (full-touch UI). Implementations for other editions of Series 40 will be taken into account during judging, but are not a requirement.
  • your submitted application(s) must be new and not published in Nokia Store before 1 January 2013.
  • your submitted application(s) must be published in Nokia Store by 23:59 UTC on 14 May 2013 (it's your responsibility to allow sufficient time for your app submission to Nokia Publish to be published in Nokia Store, but we suggest you allow 2 to 3 weeks).
  • applications must be available in English. Translations may be provided in other languages, but only the English version will be judged.
  • add a comment to this competition page including the Nokia Store link to any app you want to submit, with the title of the Series 40 webinar you attended.
  • up to three (3) overall winners could win a Nokia Asha 311 and Nokia 808 PureView.

See the fine print for more information.

The prizes

The following prizes will be awarded:

  • one (1) Nokia Asha 311 and one (1) Nokia 808 PureView to up to 3 overall winners.
  • up to ten (10) store spotlight packages.
  • up to ten (10) $100 NAX credits.

Entries may be awarded more than one prize.

Evaluation of entries

Entries will be judged on their compliance with relevant Series 40 UI guidelines, quality of the application, innovation and originality in application functionality, use of advanced APIs (where appropriate), and market appeal.
