Win 10.000,- EUR at the "Qtest Mobile App Port"

Win 10.000,- EUR at the "Qtest Mobile App Port"

Qtest Mobile App Port
Contest for Qt and KDE applications



Win 10.000,- EUR at the "Qtest Mobile App Port"

Welcome to the Qtest Mobile App Port! As developers of applications using Qt, you already know how great it is to work with - but how about on mobile platforms, such as Symbian and MeeGo? How would you like to take that step you have been wanting to take, but not been able to justify: Take your application from the desktop and bring it into the hand-held world via the Ovi store.
Let this contest be the justification, with the possibility of a new phone or even 10,000 euros waiting at the end.



Dates:
The contest starts on 20th of December, 2010, and runs till 28th of February. The 31st of December is important for you if you wish to take part in the Early Bird competition. If you do no win, you will still take part in the main competition, and will be allowed to continue your work and submit new versions to the Ovi Store. The 28th of February is the deadline for taking part in the main competition.



Developer Sprint: There will be a sponsored developer sprint organized together with the KDE e.V. during the competition. The travel and stay can be paid for if you do not have the budget yourself. Further details will be made public at a later time, and all participants will be notified of this information via email.



Win 10.000,- EUR at the "Qtest Mobile App Port"

Judging and prizes:
The Qtest Mobile App Port is evaluated by a panel of judges which will be announced in the next few days. The jury will pic 5 winners at 31th of December as the early bird winners. Every winner gets a free N900 phone. The main competition first prize is EUR 10,000, which will be awarded to the application which the judges find to be the best ported application. The second to sixth price will be another 5 N900 phones.

And, finally: Everybody who takes part in the competition will be awarded a gift bag, with a T-shirt and other merchandise.



Eligibility:

To be able to take part in the contest, the ported application must be submitted for Ovi Store signing by one of the two deadlines:
- Early bird entries must be submitted by December 31st
- Standard entries must be submitted by February 28th

You also have to submit your application to the "Mobile Contest" category on Qt-Apps.org or MeeGo-Central.org

You can submit your application to the Ovi Store as many times as you wish during the competition. This allows you to get feedback from the public on your software. It´s possible to submit new or existing KDE/Qt applications

So have fun and good luck everybody!



UPDATE:

Contest deadline extended
Several developers approached me and asked for more time to port their applications.
So we extend the deadline of the contest to 15. of April. Everybody has one more month to port a KDE or Qt application to Symbian or MeeGo.
Remember that you can win 10.000,- so please consider to make your KDE or Qt application ready for mobile.

You find more informatiuon in the original contest announcement:
http://blog.karlitschek.de/2010/12/qtest-mobile-app-port-contest-launched.html

Please make sure that you also provide binaries for you applications. This makes is a lot easier for the jury to test you application.

Have fun and good luck.

Cheers
Frank

 OVI doesn't support MeeGo

 
 by micron on: Dec 31 2010
 
Score 50%

I ported my Qt appliance to MeeGo targetting the MeeGo platform.

MeeGo programs are packaged as rpm file but there's NO way to upload them to the OVI store.

The OVI store doesn't yet support the MeeGo platform: it doesn't have a dedicated category and, most important of all, doesn't allow rpm uploads (only the .deb used by maeamo).

I would like to participate to the early bird competition but I cannot comply with one of the requirements because the OVI store doesn't support one of the target platform of this challenge!
Hence I'll submit my program only here on MeeGo central.
Publishing my app on the OVI store is impossible. Hence I won't be able to satisfy one of the eligibility rules. As I said this doesn't depends on me, but on the maintainers of the OVI Store and sponsor of this Symbian/MeeGo contest: Nokia.

I hope you will understand the situation and not exclude me from this first rush.

Sorry for the problem. I will contact Nokia about this.
You can still participate at the early bird competition if you upload it to MeeGo-Apps.org

Sorry for the unending rain of questions
but is it really necessary to upload the application here as nokia specifically made any participant developer who wants to put his/her app on ovi store sign agreement so that they can't put file anywhere else?
Thanks Again

Tell me, is it required to port the application? I am developing an application and target platform is Maemo, i.e. I have no desktop version. Can I get chance to win in contest with this app?

 Possible cause for delay?

 
 by bhairavpardiwala on: Jan 6 2011
 
Score 50%

Think they are waiting for our apps to be put on ovi store or something
but the thing is that some of us might be in ovi QA for a long time... (i.e 1-2 weeks at most)
:-(
They should just try consulting with ovi personnel abt whether app is good or not
