Chance for Blackberry developers to win $25k worth of concert tickets


bb10jamappcircusIf you’ve developed – or are currently developing – a BlackBerry® WebWorks™Adobe® AIR®, or Native Gaming app for the BlackBerry® platform, bring your app to AppCircus at BlackBerry® 10 Jam and work with RIM experts on-site to port it to the BlackBerry 10 platform. You could win $25,000 to see your favorite bands! (Winners will have up to a year to use the prize.) In order to participate in the contest, ensure you register your application with AppCircus by April 29th and attend BlackBerry 10 Jam in Orlando! If you enter now, you can get some tips for building and pitching to help you prepare for the event at BlackBerry 10 Jam.

After you’ve had a chance to tweak your apps for BlackBerry 10, you’ll pitch your app to a panel of RIM and AppCircus judges where the top three applications from each category – BlackBerry WebWorks, Adobe AIR and Native Gaming – will move on to the finals. AppCircus and RIM experts will be on hand to help these finalists perfect their presentation and apps in preparation for the finals. Finalists have a three-minute pitch and two-minute question and answer on stage, and winners are chosen by a jury. One winner in each of the three categories will receive the grand prize. Each grand prize is worth up to $25,000 USD for you and your friends to see your favorite bands throughout the year!

The prize package includes:

  • $10,000 USD cash award to purchase concert tickets and to be used as spending money for you and your friends
  • $15,000 USD Travel Voucher (booked through RIM’s agent) to purchase airline tickets, hotel reservations and ground transportation for you and your friends to attend the concerts in cities where you’ve purchased concert tickets

  1. I think I have one more reason to grab a Blackberry phone. Someone please advise me on the best berry at a budget of Ksh<20,000. Thanks in advance

    • Yes, I know of Curve 8520  which sells at around 15k and Curve 9300 which sells at 24K, I’d advice you to spend on the 9300 if you wanna go Blackberry, this gives you a faster connection.
