The HUAWEI Apps UP 2021 competition is currently underway, and all mobile app developers from across the African continent are invited to submit their best work.
HUAWEI reminds all App Developer Superstars that there are many reasons why they should submit their Applications as entries to this year’s competition, aside from the chance to win a share of $200,000 in cash prizes.
To begin, by signing up, local App developers will compete for a share of the total US$1 million prize pool against peers from the rest of Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and China. To enter, choose from the following categories: “Best Application Award,” “Best Game Award,” “Most Social Impact App,” “Best HMS Core Innovation Award,” “All Scenario Coverage Award,” “Excellent Student Award,” “Starlight Creative Award,” and “Honourable Mention Award.”
Second, HUAWEI Apps UP 2021 provides developers with the opportunity to become a part of a massive mobile ecosystem, allowing local developers access to a global market.
Entrants will gain access to over 730 million Huawei global smartphone users by participating in the contest and onboarding their Apps to HUAWEI AppGallery, increasing access to potential partners and investors.
Third, being a part of this competition means having access to all of the open capabilities provided by HUAWEI Core, which enables developers to design and create innovative applications, either alone or in collaboration with global Application developers, using nearly 60 ready-to-use developer kits that allow them to create winning Applications for any industry type, such as travel, ecommerce, finance, gaming, and so on. These Kits also enable Apps to perform optimally on Huawei smartphones, resulting in a better user experience.
Aspiring and experienced developers who want to make their mark on the African continent, and indeed the global stage, are encouraged to take the first step and be eligible to win.
The deadline for submissions is September 5, 2021, and developers from South Africa/Kenya/Nigeria/Mauritius/Zimbabwe are reminded not to miss out on this fantastic opportunity.
To enter, follow these steps:
- Navigate to the HUAWEI Apps UP website.
- Create an account: Sign up as an individual or as a group of up to three people.
- Design or create your app for integration with one or more HMS Core kits.
- Submit your application by September 5, 2021.
