Nokia Calling All Innovators Contest 2010

Qazi Atiq from Green & White highlights an opportunity for all those who are either developing innovative applications for mobiles already or have been dreaming of doing so but just needed that extra push. Nokia has announced their Calling all Innovators Contest which is divided into four categories:

Eco/Being Green
Like its name implies, this category challenges developers to help save the planet with innovative, eco-friendly applications for use on Nokia devices.

Entertainment
Here’s your chance to submit apps that rock, and show off the coolest multimedia features that are available on the latest Nokia mobile devices. This includes music, multimedia and games.

Productivity
This category seeks mobile applications that make consumer’s daily lives easier and help them to be more efficient, such as utilities, business, or personal finance applications.

Life Improvement
This category seeks applications that positively affect the daily lives of people living in developing countries, and may include education, agriculture, health and more.

This year, the contest also has a fifth category that truly stands alone:

Growth Economy Venture Challenge
Nokia’s Calling All Innovators competition has always been about trying to find the best big ideas for mobile applications from developers around the world.

There is a special call to Pakistani innovators. The site states:

The 2010 Calling All Innovators contest has a special prize for developers who submit locally relevant applications and content for use on Nokia devices by consumers living in Pakistan. The best entry by a developer based in Pakistan will receive a special prize of 1,000,000/- PKR in cash. Additionally, two runners-up will get 500,000/- PKR in cash and 300,000/- PKR in cash respectively. And remember, this is an additional incentive – you could still be a global winner in one of the four categories!*
