SUBMISSION open for contest!
Submissions are accepted from now until the end of the month (December), with final confirmation and judging to take place in the Spring semester. You will receive confirmation of submission manually via an email response.
Please email your application directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Because the contest allows for different formats, submit all necessary files as attachments to the email; you may compress all the files in a .zip format for this purpose. Also include any instructions on how to access the attached application. If the application is hosted in a store, provide the link. You may also provide external links to hosting sites (such as dropbox) if that is easier; please remember to set the correct permissions for viewing and download.
If you have coded a native mobile application, include all source code and any instructions for building, configuring, and running your mobile app. If there is any server or external component, please make sure it is running from now until the end of February, 2014, and include instructions on how to access the server.
You are allowed to submit multiple entries, but please email each entry separately. Finally, if there is some method of submission not mentioned that works best for your application, email with details and we will do our best to accomodate the submission. As always, email appcontest with any questions or concerns. Good luck!!!
