The first part of the competition starts June 21st at RIM’s "Meet the PlayBook"- event where RIM invites everyone who’s wants to learn more about the BlackBerry and the development of apps. The second part is a semi-final pitch-round where five finalists are selected. The third part takes place during The Conference, where the finalists will develop and present their final ideas.

1st price: Taking part in the Nordic rollout of the BlackBerry/PlayBook and chance to a preload!

Besides getting extensive exposure during The Conference, the winner of the competition will take part in the rollout of the BlackBerry/Playbook in the Nordic countries.

The basic conditions is to create the coolest / best BlackBerry / PlayBook app!

Bouns points will be added from the jury to apps that have a social network connected to it (extra plus for Blackberry Messenger), if it has an Nordic connection and also if its developed in WebWorks.
