Contests are always fun, and today AT&T along with HTC Corp. and I-Play announced the creation of the AT&T Game Development Contest for Windows Mobile.
Their aim of this contest is to discover the next breakthrough mobile game, and they want mobile users to be the ones to help them do this.
Mark Collins, Vice President, Consumer Data, for AT&T’s wireless unit, stated that:
AT&T has a strong commitment to deliver more wireless choices to our customers – in terms of products, services and applications. One way we reinforce this commitment and demonstrate that we are open to innovation is by working closely with the developer community so that we can bring visibility to their creativity, while ensuring that our customers have access to the most advanced, compelling and fun products and services – now and in the future.
The contest begins today, and the grand prize is quite substantial. The winner of this contest will receive a mobile game developer contract with I-Play, prime placement on AT&T media mall, as well as a cash prize of $25,000. Prizes will also be awarded to three finalists and ten semifinalists.
The contest deadline is July 31, 2008, so if you want to get involved make sure that you have your entry in by this date.
