I haven’t run a promotion for a while, so this is a little “thank you” to all of the awesome developers in the Southeast USA. You have made my job as a Nokia Developer Ambassador very easy, and in exchange I want to give back. So this is what I’m going to do. First of all, the prizes. There will be a drawing from all of the eligible entries and four winners, each for one of the following prizes:
- One Lenovo Miix 2 8” Windows 8.1 Pro Tablet 32GB
- One year Xbox Music Pass PLUS a Nokia Lumia 520
- One Nokia Lumia 520
- One Nokia Lumia 900
Any of these prizes can really help with your app development. Whether you want to target the small form factor Windows devices, or the most popular Windows Phone in the world, or you want to support the significant number of Windows Phone 7 users still out there, there is something for you.
Ok so how to enter? First of all, you need to reside in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina or Alabama. If you live somewhere else in USA or Canada, ask me who your local Nokia Developer Ambassador is and I can get you connected.
Next, you need to have published a NEW Windows Phone 8 app between Feb 1 and March 31 2014. The deadline for submissions is April 1, with a drawing on April 2. You can enter multiple times, once per new app, but only one prize per developer.
Finally, you need to email me at ext-bill.reiss at nokia.com the following by April 1:
- Subject line: Southeast Windows Phone App Contest
- A link to your app in the Windows Phone Store
- Your name
- Your City, State of residence
Thank you again for your support! 2013 was a great year and I look forward to 2014 being a big year for Windows Phone developers.
