If you are building a Windows Phone app, either for the competitions or challenges, we have worked with a number of Microsoft experts, including our Windows Phone Challenge Captain, Jukka Wallasvaara, to put together the following:
Win Bigger with the Windows 8 Boost! If you're one of the three Windows Phone Challenge winners at the Worldwide Finals in St. Petersburg, and your project includes a Windows 8 Store App, your team will win an extra US$1,000 thanks to the Windows 8 Boost! Please see the official rules for details.
Pump up your prize with the Windows Azure Boost! If you're the top Windows Phone 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)
