I received an email today regarding Nokia’s open screen project fund that is offering up to $30,000 USD for winners in their ‘calling all innovators’ competition. If you are creating or have Flash-based software the runs on Nokia, you may be interested in the following:
“Calling All Innovators” is a contest for applications that run on Nokia devices, with cash prizes (of up to US$30,000) and business opportunities with Nokia. The contest closes on June 30 (this Tuesday). To find out how to submit your Flash app visit http://www.callingallinnovators.com/flash.aspx
The “Open Screen Project Fund’ is a US$10 million market development fund offering grants to developers for apps, content or services that use Flash and work across multiple devices. There’s a lot more info on the website: http://www.openscreenproject.org/developers/get_started.html
Both the contest and fund highlight the commitment that Nokia has to helping developers create amazing apps. Almost 40 percent of all new mobile devices in 2008 shipped with Flash Lite, so it’s a real opportunity to get an app delivered to a global audience.
