Nokia launches Imagin8 Mission to capture the imagination of developers

Nokia Camea

Nokia has launched its Imagin8 Mission, tasking developers to either publish a new app or upload an update for an existing Windows Phone app, taking full advantage of the new Nokia Imaging SDK (version 1.1). While all valid submissions will be rewarded with both DVLUP Points and XP, the best 3 apps will win special Imagin8 Mission prizes.

Here's what Nokia has on the table for developers:

  • Winner: An expenses paid trip for 2 to experience zero gravity. Nokia will take the winning developer and a chosen person to Cape Canaveral, Florida on July 19 2014. As well as this trip, the winner will also bag 2 Nokia Lumia Windows Phones (of choice), 10,000 Points and XP on DVLUP and promotions throughout the app store, App Social and other channels.
  • 2 Runners-up: Two app developers who come in behind the winning entry will be rewarded a new Nokia Lumia 1520 and 5,000 Points and CP on DVLUP.

Nokia Imagin8

While you won't be heading into space itself, it'll be an awesome experience nonetheless. Should you be interested in participating in this mission, be sure to familiarise yourself with the covered DVLUP challenges.
