clip_image001[4]Just this week on 10/1, some friends at MoDev announced a contest, for a chance to win cash prizes, totaling $10K. My favorite part, is that you can actually control whether or not you win, with a public vote, which will occur after the contest entry period ends on 12/31. You just have to get your friends (and their friends) to vote for your app! J Helps drive awareness for your published app & increase your downloads, but also increases your chance to win. Check out the details below.

The MoDev Windows $10k App Contest

We’re looking for those game changers, industry disruptors—denizens of creative awesome from across the developer community. We’ll award prizes two ways:

  1. An impartial panel of judges will pick the top three apps from among the entries and award prizes
  2. We’ll put the pool of entries up for a public vote, and encourage some healthy competition between entrants to promote your app and get the public to vote for you

To qualify, entrants need to submit new Windows 8 or Windows Phone apps to the Windows Store or Windows Phone Store between October 1 and December 31, 2013, and fill out the Contest Entry form. Judging and public voting will begin in January 2014, with winners announced by January 31st.
