Nokia is challenging developers to create applications and services that will enhance the use of mobile devices in real-world scenarios.
Now in its third year, the Calling All Innovators competition aims to inspire creativity and develop positive change through education, entertainment, innovation and productivity.
The contest has four submission categories: Eco/being green: apps that help to save the planet with innovative, eco-friendly uses; Productivity: apps that make people’s lives easier by helping them to be more efficient such as utilities, business, or personal finance applications; Life improvement: apps that have a positive effect on people living in developing countries; Entertainment: apps that show off the coolest multimedia features including music and games.
Forum Nokia has also teamed up with Sesame Workshop, the producers of Sesame Street, to form a sub category under “life improvement” called “education”. The aim of this category is to encourage developers to create and offer applications that teach early literacy on Nokia devices to communities around the world.
Calling All Innovators submissions will be accepted from the 1st February 2010. The closing date is the 18th May 2010. See: www.callingallinnovators.com
