Following the success of the first season of ‘Nokia Lumia- Your Wish is My App’, Nokia India has announced the season 2 of the contest. Last year, this app reality TV show was limited to app enthusiasts across India, but this year Nokia is going big by including consumers and developers from across the globe in this contest. As you all know, you have to submit mobile application ideas that have the potential to be developed into successful apps for the Windows Phone Store and you could stand a chance to become a millionaire(In India, grand prize money is 1 million INR). Last season, the contest received 38,000 app ideas and Nokia is looking forward to a pool of 50,000 app ideas for season II.
Nokia will be collecting ideas from people through social media, SMS, phone, and at various functions, events which will be held at colleges and universities across India. Finally, 30 shortlisted apps will be showcased in a nine-episode reality TV show which will be aired on NDTV Prime starting mid-March. There is a grand prize of Rs 10 lakhs (1 million), two runners up will be awarded Rs 5 lakhs and Rs 2 lakhs each and three lucky winners will stand a chance to win the new amazing Nokia Lumia 1520. The winners will be judged on the basis of parameters such as the originality of the idea, relevance, potential for revenue and the practicality of implementing it.
The best part of this contest is, Nokia will be publishing the 4000 top ideas on Nokia DVLUP, making them available to developers from India and across the world to convert into live apps.
