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

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
