Design to Do. Design to Connect.
Design to Delight.
Winners Announced March 2013
Now you can change the future by designing an app for Windows Phone that helps you create better, connect with your loved ones or just impresses the pants off your future self.
The great apps of the future will empower you, so focus your entries into one of these three categories:
FIVE winning app designs will be chosen and receive a Microsoft Surface, Windows Phone device, design review call with a Windows Phone team member and an opportunity to be featured in an “Amp Up Your App” segment on Microsoft Channel 9. 50 finalists will receive a one-year subscription to the Windows Phone Dev Center, and those who launch their apps in the Windows Phone Store can also win a Windows Phone device.
Register to enter—create an account, login and submit as many app ideas as you want until 11:59pm EST Sunday, February 10, 2013.
No need to code! Each entry needs the name of your app, a description, and up to five screen images from your app design. Photoshop templates and additional resources and tools to help you design are available in the Resources. Once your app is mocked up, you can also include a walk-through presentation of it by uploading a video or .pdf file.
Each app needs a name and description (500 words max). Identify problems and your unique solutions. And be sure to address which category your app fits into.
Mock up your app design with SketchFlow, use the Photoshop templates in Resources, or scan your brilliant napkin sketches. Upload up to five .jpg or .png image files. At least one image is required.
Optional. Create a video that illustrates key or charming interaction. Show why we want to use your app. Upload up to two minutes of a .mov, .mpg, .wmv, .avi, or .m4v file.
Optional. Create a prototype with Sketchflow and submit the application file (.xap file) from your project package, or make a linear presentation of your app. Upload one .xap, one .pdf, or one of each file.
