If you are building an app with Windows 8, either for the competitions or challenges, we have worked with a number of Microsoft experts, including our Windows 8 App Challenge Captain, to put together the following:
Pump up your prize with the Windows Azure Boost! If you're the top Windows 8 Challenge winner at the Worldwide Finals in St. Petersburg, and your project includes Windows Azure Cloud Services, Websites, or Virtual Machines, your team will win an extra US$1,000! If your project includes Windows Mobile Services you can win an extra US$1,000 that way, too. And if you win both boosts you get the Double Shot bonus for $3,000 instead of $2,000! Please see the official rules for details.
Code better with the DevExpress Boost! If you’re the first-place winning team in any of our competitions and challenges at the Imagine Cup Worldwide Finals this July in St. Petersburg, Russia, each member of your team will receive a DevExpress Universal Subscription so you have the powerful coding tools you need to make your next great app! Please see the official rules for details.
1st Place: $10,000 (USD)
2nd Place: $5,000 (USD)
3rd Place: $3,000 (USD)
And a free trip to St. Petersburg for all finalist teams & mentors!
