Are you ready to Code Your Art Out?!

Are you a student with a project you’re aching to tackle, but need a little incentive?
Are you developer that wants to help your community, but don’t know how?
Or, do you just want to receive some serious cred for your developer skills?

Here’s your APPortunity to win up to $15,000 and earn top recognition.

“Code Your Art Out” is a wicked coding competition.  Any kind of web app can be submitted.   Application submissions will be judged on Interoperability, Creativity and Usability.  First prize is $10,000!  Second prize is $5,000!   And, if you want to be eligible for the bonus prize of $5,000 you create an app for a non-profit.   This is your chance to shine!

The competition kicked off March 1st and ends on June 1st. The top two finalists will be announced on June 10th and will compete for first and second place on the evening of June 24th in downtown Toronto.  Microsoft will pay for travel if you’re not located in Toronto. This is a national coding competition and we encourage everyone around Canada to participate.    If you develop a killer app and are not a finalist, you’ll still be able to present at the main event, and you’ll be featured on various Microsoft websites.  Basically you’ll still get props if you put in the time to create something awesome.
