Create for Millions

GLOBAL – The Create for Millions challenge has come to a close, and today, during Nokia Developer Day at Mobile World Congress, Nokia announced the grand prize winners. Here they come.

The challenge, for those who chose to accept it, was to submit their best Series 40 Java or web apps that identify locally relevant content. The winners would receive a share of cash and prices, worth 1 million euros.

Receiving more than 1,200 submissions, Nokia were faced with the task of picking the absolute best apps in four different categories. Although the winners were picked to win the cash prizes, all apps were published to the Nokia Store for download.

The top three winners of each category are:

Access to Knowledge

Emotional Closeness

Fun and Games

In the Know

The top ten winning apps of all four categories will receive cash prizes from Nokia, however the top winner of each category will receive a top prize of 50,000 euros and receive free promotional activities through many of Nokia-owned channels.

As well as the top prize of 50,000 euros, the winners in each category will also receive a free user experience consultation from Nokia and support from a top design agency to create Spotlight banners.

There were also special prizes to give away for apps that showcased certain features particularly well. Here are the special winners:

Best Series 40 Location-based App

  • Locago – Patric Nordström, Sweden

Best Series 40 Touch-based App

  • Sandbox – Alexander Fürgut, Germany
