Qt Contest: Port a desktop App to MeeGo/Symbian handheld for Ovi Store and win EUR 10,000!

| December 23, 2010 | Reply

Word from Jim is that a couple of days ago a competition launched for Qt Developers.

Take your application from the desktop and port it to handheld devices, be it for MeeGo or Symbian via Qt, ready for Ovi Store consumption!

There’s either a new phone “or even 10,000 euros” as a prize.

The competition runs until the 28th February 2011. However, an early bird competition finishes on the 31st December 2010. 5 winners will be selected, each winning a Nokia N900!

The main competition prize is EUR 10,000 (10 thousand, I know how sometimes . is used instead of , and 10 euros might not seem such a cool amount :p) and will be awarded to the app which has been found by judges to be the best ported application. Then there’s supposedly 5 more Nokia N900s to give out.

And you get something too just for taking part! You’ll be awarded a gift bag, with a T-shirt and “other merchandise.”
