Deadline: 28th February, 2014:
Is your app a winner? Developers, startups and students who have an idea for a great app, here is your opportunity. You are invited to submit your entries and compete in the Ericsson Application Awards 2014 for the best Android or iOS apps.
Smartphone penetration exploding
The market for smartphone applications, or apps, has exploded over the past few years. This started, more or less, with the introduction of the iPhone and has been complemented by the advent of the open-source Android mobile operating system. Ericsson are keen to understand how communication equipment and services are used by users. Hence the Ericsson Application Awards – a competition where talented developers, top students and entrepreneurs have a chance to show what they can do and what ideas they have.
Open to students and SME’s
This is the fifth consecutive year that Ericsson has run the contest. Students and small- and medium-sized enterprises from anywhere in the world are invited to submit Android and OS apps. This competition will give the opportunity to gain a foothold in the app industry while also earning recognition and making contacts within the telecom industry.
The theme for this year is “Working Life.” It is about creating ways to connect people, things and places to empower individuals, society and enterprises. How can mobility, the cloud, applications and services improve our working life? Can apps help people innovate, collaborate and balance life outside work? We are open to suggestions.
The awards for each category (Students and Companies) are as follows:
First prize: EUR 25 000
Second prize: EUR 10 000
Third to tenth prize: diplomas, honorary mentions
Technology for Good award
Deadline: 28th February, 2014
