Interested in winning the just announced Lumia 1020 and a trip to Lund, Sweden? You might find this interesting. Nokia’s developer program has just announced the ‘Future Caption Competition‘ a competition inviting all the imaging apps and hacks that you can think of. Nokia wants you to ‘push the limits of imaging too, think outside the box, and create apps worthy of the phone’s unique capabilities’.
You can submit upto 3 ideas, and Nokia will be flying the the creators of the 10 best idea to a hackathon in Sweden, where you’ll code that idea into reality alongside Nokia’s imaging experts. While this suggests that you should know code, there is some hope for those of you with a bright idea but no coding skills. If your idea makes it to the top 10, you can take another developer to Sweden with you.
So its time to think of a bright idea, and find a developer friend who can do the heavy lifting for you. Then, there’s another competition called the ‘Nokia Imaging Wiki Competition‘. Here Nokia’s looking for ‘great original articles, tutorials and guides that showcase the opportunities in imaging and photography on Lumia, and in particular from the new SDK and Nokia Lumia 1020’. The prizes here also include the Lumia 1020, and membership of the Nokia Premium Developer Program for Lumia for up to four wiki contributors. Then Nokia will also pick one winner for the best feedback on the Nokia Imaging SDK.
