PORTLAND, OR, United States – Back in June, we requested your help in judging a little contest we call Calling All Innovators. The contest involves application developers submitting their best apps for consideration and some amazing prizes.
The total amount in the prize pool is $10M including $4M in cash and $6M in Nokia marketing for the chosen applications. Two Grand Prize Winners will each win $250K in cash and $1.9M in Nokia marketing. Seventeen Category Winners will each win $150K in cash. And five hundred developers will win a new customized Nokia X7 Symbian^3 smartphone.
After numerous amazing app submissions and a very active voting period, the votes have been gathered and tallied. Now is the time to unveil the Category Prize Winners. Go to the Calling All Innovators site and see the first, second and third place winners in each category.
Access all the winners in one easy app
To easily check out the winners on your Symbian^3 device, AppJudgment (available in Ovi Store and accompanying Facebook App) will be updated to highlight the Category Prize Winners, allowing you quick access to all the winning apps in one place. Using App Judgment, you can download the contest winners and even share apps you enjoy with your friends and colleagues via text, email, Facebook and Twitter.
Some of our favorites
There are numerous apps to check out, as first, second and third place winners are categorized in eleven categories ranging from social networking to finance to city guides, with a further six categories of games.
Here are screenshots of a few of our favorites:
App Judgment is available globally for all new Symbian^3 devices except the Nokia E6. We will finish Calling All Innovators in grand style by announcing the Grand Prize and Grand Prize Runner Ups at an event in Sunnyvale, California later this month.
Thanks to all those involved for making this a successful contest!
