Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to everyone that participated in the Intel App Innovation Contest 2013! The official Intel announcement with the full list of winners can be found here. The CodeProject contestants that claimed 6 out of 9 possible prizes and helped secure our spot as the top developer community are listed below:
Compete against fellow CodeProject members in Round 1 by submitting your biggest, best and brightest Windows 8 Desktop App ideas in one of six categories: Entertainment or Games (for the All-in-One platform) or Education, Healthcare, Finance, or Retail (for the tablet platform).
CodeProject will send up to 125 finalists to Round 2 with a new Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2® or a Lenovo Horizon 27" All-In-One® PC to complete their demo app and go up against finalists from CodeProject and other developer communities in India, China and Russia.
Intel and industry judges will take over in Round 2 and choose the top five apps from each of the six categories to move onto the final judging round of video demos where $100,000 in cash prizes and promotions will be awarded.
Thank you for submitting your app ideas. Round 1 is now closed.
(October 2 – November 6 for Early Bird Entries. November 7 - 13 for Non-Early Bird Entries)
Your YouTube video should clearly present the features and innovative uses of your demo app and can take the form of on-screen dialogue, voice-over or subtitles. Any developer not comfortable with creating a video of themselves or not fluent in English may appoint someone to present on their behalf or to help them write the subtitle text. Let us know if you need help!
It’s time to turn your big idea into big code. Use your new Lenovo dev machine to code, test, tweak, debug, and optimize your demo app for submission to Intel and industry judges. Remember, these are Windows 8 desktop mode applications, not Windows Store/Modern/Metro apps. See question #5 of the FAQ for more information on this distinction.
It is important to understand that there are two distinct submission windows during which you may upload your Demo App in Round 2. The first window is between October 2 and November 6th at 11:59 p.m. GMT and is for contestants that want to participate in the Early Bird Mini-Contest. The second window is between November 7 and November 13th at 11:59 p.m. GMT and is for contestants that do not want to participate in the Early Bird Mini-Contest.
If you submit your Demo App between October 2 and November 6 you are automatically entered into the Early Bird Mini-Contest and you may upload/update your submission as many times as you wish between October 2 and the November 6 deadline. However, if you do submit during this window you are not permitted to re-submit an updated version between November 7th and November 13th. No exceptions.
If you decide to not participate in the Early Bird Mini-Contest (i.e. you do not submit a Demo App between October 2 and November 6) you may upload your App Submission once and only once between November 7th and November 13th at 11:59 p.m. GMT. No exceptions.
Submit your demo app during the first Round 2 app submission window (October 2 - November 6 at 11:59 p.m. GMT) to be eligible for and automatically entered into the Early Bird Mini-Contest. The Top 10 highest scoring apps from CodeProject finalists (based on the Round 2 judging criteria and as judged by Intel/industry judges) will be awarded a $250 cash prize. Eligible finalists may only win one early bird prize.
It is very important to note that if you decide to enter the Early Bird Mini-Contest you may upload/update your submission as many times as you wish between October 2 and the November 6 deadline. However, if you do submit during this window you are not permitted to re-submit an updated version between November 7th and November 13th.
Final round, we promise. So that the Intel and industry judges can fairly evaluate the entries submitted from different parts of the world, the developers submitting the top five demo apps in each of the six contest categories will be asked to submit a five minute video (you can use the same video submitted in Round 2 or you can update it and create a new one). The new video should clearly present the features and innovative uses of the demo app and needs to be in English. The final video demo will be judged using the same criteria as in Round 2, and the points awarded for the final video demo will be added to the total developer Round 2 score in determining the contest winners. Please see question #21 of the FAQ for more information.
30 final apps announced on December 5 (11:59 p.m. GMT). 30 Final English Video Demos due by December 12 (11:59 p.m. GMT).

Consumer, SMB, Corporate or Enterprise – we want your best Windows* 8 Desktop app ideas and demo or complete apps for the full spectrum of end users. You can submit almost anything, but ensure your apps showcases the unique capabilities of your chosen form factor. Consider things like:
Demo apps or finished apps whose user experience has been optimized for the AIO or Tablet are acceptable.
|All-In-One||Entertainment||Reinvent fun. Dream up an interactive entertainment experience that helps make the All-In-One an endless adventure. Enhance a trip to the movies, a concert, or a theme park. Turn a lazy video stream into a whitewater thrill ride.|
|Games||Design something amazing. Whether it’s a simple multi-touch puzzler or an epic journey with a massive field of view, your app will make the All-In-One a gaming legend.|
|Tablet||Education||Think globally, compile locally. Bridge cultures and coursework with an educational app for students and consumers alike. Re-imagine learning and the way we interact in and out of the classroom.|
|Finance||Take high finance higher. Take the work (and the “paper”) out of bank paperwork. Create a tablet app stockbrokers won’t leave home without. Improve the bottom line for savers, investors, lenders and traders.|
|Healthcare||Build a medical marvel. Submit an app that makes the tablet a must-have companion for doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and home-healthcare providers. Advance the quality of life for one; enhance the quality of the world for millions.|
|Retail||Improve the way we shop. Make paper lists, printed coupons, and endless checkout queues of the past. Re-engineer the way warehouses pick, pack and ship. Re-order the way we order.|
As with any competition of this nature there are some restrictions. Employees of Intel, Lenovo, CodeProject and the other participating partner developer communities cannot enter, and laws in certain jurisdictions also restrict entrants. Please see the Terms and Conditions for a full list.
Only residents of the following 20 countries who are at least eighteen (18) years of age and the age of majority in their country, state, province or territory of residence at the time of entry are eligible to enter: Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Canada (not including Quebec), Germany, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Kenya, Nigeria, People’s Republic of China, Republic of South Africa, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, UK, Ukraine, and the 50 United States of America (and the District of Columbia) .
Yes, it's a shame we can't open it to everyone because of various laws in different countries, but we had to make a call on whether it's better to offer it to many (but not all) of you or none at all.
No, you don't need to provide a full article because we understand that (a) you may not have your code and article complete, and (b) you may be entering a commercial application that contains proprietary information. However, please note that at the conclusion of the competition those entries that do not fulfill the submission guidelines will be removed.
However, we love code. The more code you post in your article - snippets, tips, classes, or even full code - the better. Your priority in this competition is to complete the tasks set out for Round 1, Round 2 and Round 3... but if you can post a full article as well, that's perfect!
Unfortunately no. You must be chosen as a Round 1 finalist to be able to compete in Round 2, but we still encourage you to turn your app idea into a reality and start coding. Submit an article to CodeProject to share your code and tell us what you learn!
Judges will be testing apps on development systems with the Windows 8 OS and latest Windows Updates. As such, contestants can/are encouraged to run the latest Windows Updates to update their default device settings and to patch known issues.
Any other application dependencies must be accompanied by detailed step-by-step installation instructions in your ReadMe file and all fully contained within the single ZIP file that you will be uploading by the Round 2 deadline on November 13; however, because of the time constraints related to judging it is recommended to keep additional app dependencies to a minimum and to keep the installation process of your app as simple as possible
No. Judges will not be using Windows 8.1 so it it recommended that you do not upgrade your device to Win 8.1 and that you perform all of your testing and app deployment in Windows 8.
The devices that the judges will use for judging will not have external peripheral equipment or extra software like Microsoft Office. If a contestant's app depends on this then they can include a demonstration of the particular feature within their 5-minute demo video so that the judges can view the feature. It's recommended to have the app prompt end users with a message if the end user's machine does not have the required peripheral and/or software to run the app's full functionality.
There is no official recommendation. It is up to the developer’s individual preference.
Adobe PDF Reader is not installed on either the Lenovo Horizon All-In-One or the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2. For both the All-In-One and tablet, judges will be able to open PDF documents using the Windows 8 default PDF reader application "Windows Reader". Alternatively, on the ThinkPad Tablet 2 contestants may choose to use the Nitro Pro 8 app for PDFs as this comes pre-installed and judges will have access to it as well.

As part of the submission process described below in Section 5A, entrant will designate the Platform and the Category to which their idea (and Demo App) is being submitted.
[Note: By completing the registration form, an entrant/employee of the Employer Entrant consents to the use of his/her personal data with respect to all matters related to participation in the Contest.]
By submitting and uploading your Idea Submission, you agree and understand that:
All of your Idea Submissions must be submitted through the same Entry Site. Any developer who submits through more than one Entry Site will be disqualified from the Contest. All of his/her entries to any Entry Site will also be disqualified.
All Idea Submissions are subject to verification by the Sponsor and the Applicable Participating Partner in accordance with these Official Rules. Any attempted form of entry other than as described herein is void. Sponsor and the Applicable Participating Partner, in accordance with these Official Rules, will determine in their sole discretion, what constitutes a valid entry.
Sponsor, Participating Partners and Administrator are not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected Idea Submissions; all of which will be void and not considered.
See Section 15 of these Official Rules for important information related to the collection, storage and/or export of the personal data that you submit as part of this Contest.
Round 1 Entry Deadline. Idea Submissions must be received by the Applicable Participating Partner between July 24, 2013 at 12:01 AM GMT and September 4, 2013 at 11:59 PM GMT in order to be considered for advancement to the Demo Submission (Round 2) period described in Section 5D of these Official Rules.
As indicated above, for each of the four (4) Entry Sites, up to one hundred twenty-five (125) Accepted Idea Submissions will be selected subject to the following allocations and Category minimums:
To be clear, there will not be an equal number of selected Finalists in each of the six (6) Categories because of the above Platform allocations and Category minimums.
In addition, an entrant's Idea Submission must score at least seventy (70) points or greater for the Idea Submission to be eligible to be (and deemed) an Accepted Idea Submission. In the event of a tie (or multiple ties) that impact the selection of the one hundred twenty-five (125) Idea Submissions selected as Accepted Idea Submissions from an Entry Site, the tied entrant whose Idea Submission received the higher score for criteria (i) above, as determined by the qualified judges in their sole discretion, will be deemed a Finalist (and that entry will be an Accepted Idea Submission). In the event of a continued tie, the still-tied entrant whose Idea Submission is deemed to be the most marketable, as determined by the qualified judges in their sole discretion, will be deemed a Finalist (and that entry will be an Accepted Idea Submission). Sponsor and each Participating Partner reserve the right to select fewer than one hundred twenty-five (125) Idea Submissions as Accepted Idea Submissions from among entries received via that Participating Partner’s Entry Site if (i) an insufficient number of such Idea Submissions meet the scoring threshold described above; (ii) an insufficient number of eligible Idea Submissions are received; and/or (iii) in their sole discretion, if an insufficient number of such Idea Submissions meet the Guidelines and Restrictions (as defined and described) in Section 6 of these Official Rules). The judging of an Idea Submission will commence promptly after it is submitted.
Since there are four (4) separate Entry Sites (where, pursuant to the above, there may be up to one hundred twenty-five (125) Accepted Idea Submissions selected per Entry Site), there may be up to five hundred (500) Idea Submissions (across all Entry Sites) that are selected as Accepted Idea Submissions to advance to Round 2.
The odds of being selected to become a Finalist and move on to participate in Round 2 of the Contest will depend on a combination of: (i) the total number of eligible Idea Submissions received in each Category during the Idea Submission (Round 1) period; and (ii) the score the Idea Submission receives by the judges in accordance with the Judging Criteria outlined above.
Each selected Finalist will receive an email notification from Administrator or the Applicable Participating Partner advising him/her that he/she has been selected as a Finalist. Please check your email and spam filters. Such notice will (i) indicate that the selected Finalist has the opportunity to participate in Round 2 of the Contest; and (ii) identify which Idea Submission(s) submitted by the Finalist are Accepted Idea Submissions eligible for Round 2.
In Sponsor’s sole discretion, any entrant who has entered on behalf of his or her employer and/or a group may be required to provide confirmation that he/she is authorized to enter on behalf of his/her employer and/or group in order to receive the Loaner Device and be considered for a prize in the subsequent parts of the Contest. Dependent on (and subject to) shipping times, customs requirements and other requirements, Loaner Devices will be distributed between September 11, 2013 and October 2, 2013, properly packed. Arrival of the Loaner Device to the Finalist is dependent on shipping times and customs. Sponsor, Participating Partners, and Administrator will not be responsible for any delayed (whether by customs or otherwise), late, lost, or misdirected Loaner Devices regardless of impact on Finalist’s ability to participate in the Contest unless Sponsor, Participating Partners, and/or Administrator act negligently or willfully.
For Ukraine Residents Only (or otherwise applicable): Sponsor will send a Loaner Device to the Finalist, provided that the Finalist must conduct customs clearance of the Loaner Device and Sponsor will compensate the Finalist for the incurred customs clearance expenses upon submission by the Finalist of the relevant evidence in writing.
Please note: Finalists may use programming aides and tools ("Programming Tools") defined as tools and engines required to write the code and interface with the creative assets ("Assets") that are used only to enhance the look and feel of the Demo App that he/she has not personally created, with the following caveats: Finalists must have all the necessary rights to use any such Programming Tools and Assets in this Contest, and the terms and conditions or licensing agreements associated with Programming Tools and Assets must allow Finalist to grant all rights set forth in this Official Rules.
Videos posted on a designated video upload site must comply with all of the terms, conditions and requirements of such site. All videos must also comply with the technical, creative, and legal requirements set forth in these Official Rules. All videos must be in the language used on the Applicable Participating Partner Entry Site or English, be no longer than five (5) minutes in length, and must be submitted in one of the formats as required by Sponsor and/or the designated video upload site.
By submitting and uploading your Demo Submission, you agree and understand that your Demo Submission conforms to the Guidelines and Restrictions set forth in Section 6 of these Official Rules and that Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may remove your Demo Submission and disqualify you from the Contest if it believes that your Demo Submission fails to conform to the Guidelines and Restrictions (or otherwise does not comply with these Official Rules). Finalists may submit one (1) Demo Submission (featuring only one Demo App) per Accepted Idea Submission. A Demo Submission/Demo App is required to closely align with the Accepted Idea Submission (as determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion).
All Demo Submissions are subject to verification by the Sponsor. Any attempted form of entry other than as described herein is void. Sponsor, in accordance with these Official Rules, will determine in its sole discretion, what constitutes a valid entry. Sponsor, Participating Partners and Administrator are not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected Demo Submissions; all of which will be void and not considered unless Sponsor, Participating Partners, and/or Administrator act negligently or willfully.
Round 2 Entry Deadline. Demo Submissions must be received by Sponsor between October 2, 2013 at 12:01 AM GMT and November 13, 2013 at 11:59 PM GMT in order to be eligible for a Demo Submission Prize.
Nothing in these Guidelines and Restrictions shall require that a Submission be created by an entrant specifically for this Contest, nor shall these Guidelines and Restrictions prohibit an entrant from submitting a Submission that he/she previously published, provided that the entrant has retained ownership and/or all necessary rights to exploit the Submission in this Contest.
For Residents of Ukraine Only: The entrant may be required to enter into an additional license agreement with Sponsor and/or Lenovo in the form and substance complying with Ukrainian law. Sponsor may send a template of such license agreement or a license to the entrant by e-mail or by other means and, if sent to entrant, such template must be filled in and printed out by the entrant and its executed hard copy must be sent to Sponsor by mail. Provisions of this Section 7 are also applied to an Employer Entrant's employee/each individual from a group of individuals – the author(s) of a Demo Submission.
The odds of being selected as a Demo Finalist will depend on a combination of: (i) the total number of eligible Demo Submissions received in each Category during the Demo Submission (Round 2) period; and (ii) the score the Demo Submission receives by the judges in accordance with the Judging Criteria outlined above.
Each Demo Finalist will be required to provide a new video, subject to Section 6, that presents the features and innovative uses of his/her Demo App (“New Video”). The
New Video cannot be the same video that you previously submitted in this Contest. While the Demo App itself does not need to be translated into English, the New Video must be presented in English via on-screen dialog, voice-over or subtitles. The New Video may feature the voice and/or physical appearance of the Demo Finalist and/or the voice and/or physical appearance of another person as long as such other person signs and returns a release waiver as required by Sponsor and in accordance with Section 6. A Demo Finalist may obtain assistance from another person to write the subtitle text if such Demo Finalist is not fluent in English.
New Videos may be submitted via the Entry Site by uploading an unlisted link to the Administrator’s Servers. The unlisted link will access the video the Demo Finalist has uploaded to the designated video site (such as YouTube or YouKu) between December 5, 2013 at 12:01 AM GMT and December 12, 2013 at 11:59 PM GMT. Other specific details about the New Video (including additional format, timing and other requirements and limitations (if any)) will be provided to each Demo Finalist at the time of Demo Finalist selection. A panel of qualified judges will be selected by the Sponsor in its sole discretion to judge the New Videos.
Between December 13, 2013 and no later than December 31, 2013, the New Video of each Demo Finalist will be judged and awarded points during this judging round based on application of the same criteria and point structure indicated above in (i) – (iv). Sponsor and judges reserve the right to refer to and consider the associated Demo Submission to clarify and/or better understand the New Video. The points awarded for your New Video will be added to your score for the corresponding Demo Submission, with the combined score constituting your “Total Score.”
In order to be considered for the Overall Grand Prize, the AIO Platform Grand Prize or the Tablet Platform Grand Prize, the Demo Finalist’s Total Score must be at least two hundred-forty (240) points or greater.
The odds of being selected as a prize winner will depend on a combination of: (i) the total number of eligible New Videos submitted by each Demo Finalist in each Category during the Demo Submission (Round 2) period; and (ii) the score the New Video receives by the judges in accordance with the Judging Criteria outlined above.
In the event one (1) or more Demo Finalists tie with the same highest Total Score for any of the prizes/Categories listed above, the winner for that prize/category will be selected by Sponsor based on which of the tied entries the judges believe has the most potential marketability. Sponsor reserves the right to select fewer than the potential nine (9) winners, if, in its sole discretion, an insufficient number of New Video/Demo Submissions meet the scoring criteria threshold described above or if Sponsor does not receive a sufficient number of eligible New Videos.
Demo Submission Prizes. As described below, there will be up to nine (9) Demo Submission prizes which include the following: up to one (1) Overall Grand Prize, up to one (1) AIO Platform Grand Prize, up to one (1) Tablet Platform Grand Prize and up to six (6) individual Category Prizes (i.e., one for each of the six (6) Categories listed in Section 5 of these Official Rules).

General Requirements. All prizes will be in the form of a check, via PayPal or via bank transfer as determined by Sponsor in accordance with applicable law. Limit one (1) Demo Submission prize per person. If an entrant would be otherwise eligible for Demo Submission prizes in excess of this limit (e.g., eligible for prizes in two different Categories), Sponsor shall determine, in its sole discretion, which prize such person will receive, but, however, shall not be entitled to choose a prize less valuable than the other one(s) such entrant may be entitled to. The entrant's other Submissions will be deemed ineligible and the prize in the other Category will be awarded to the entrant with the next highest Total Score for the applicable Category. As applicable, prizes will be awarded as cash or a cash equivalent (e.g., PayPal). A winner may be required to set up a PayPal account, as directed by the Sponsor, in order to receive his/her prize.

If an individual entrant who submitted a Submission on behalf of a group is a selected winner, then such individual entrant will be responsible for the tax-related obligations unless applicable law provides otherwise. For all non-U.S. winners, 30% of the prize value accepted will be withheld and remitted to the IRS to the extent required to comply with U.S. tax laws (subject to any applicable international agreements and/or understandings) and, where appropriate, additional amounts will be withheld as required by winner's country of residence.
For Residents of Ukraine Only: Selected prize winners will also be notified in the same manner as they were notified about the Contest – via the Entry Sites.
If a winner is an Employer Entrant, the corresponding prize will be delivered to the individual who entered on behalf of the Employer (or other representative of the employer as mutually agreed by such individual and Sponsor). If a winner entered on behalf of a group, the corresponding prize will be delivered to the individual who entered on behalf of that group.
Among other things, the Prize Documents will include provisions whereby selected winner: (a) releases Sponsor, Participating Partners, Administrator, Lenovo and the other Promotion Entities from, to the maximum extent permitted under law, any and all liability, loss, claims, demands, and causes of action for personal injuries or death and/or damage to personal or real property, theft, loss, or any other harm suffered directly or indirectly from potential winner's participation in the Contest, including, but not limited to, traveling to, preparing for and/or participating in any prize related activity, or the acceptance, possession, or use or misuse of any prize; and (b) except where prohibited by law, grants a right that gives Sponsor, Participating Partners, Administrator and the other Promotion Entities the right to use selected winner's name, picture and/or likeness, or biographical information or voice for trade, advertising and publicity purposes, in any media now known or hereafter devised, throughout the world, in perpetuity, without additional compensation or consideration or notification.
In Sponsor’s sole discretion, a selected winner may forfeit the prize and an alternate winner may be selected in accordance with these Official Rules from among the remaining eligible Submissions for such prize if such selected winner (i) cannot be reached or does not accept the prize per the Official Rules within five (5) business days, (ii) declines or cannot accept, receive or use a prize for any reason, (iii) fails to execute and/or return the Prize Documents as instructed; or (iv) does not comply with these Official Rules. Sponsor is not obligated to leave voice mail, answering machine, or other message. Each selected winner must show valid government issued driver's license, National ID Card, passport or other identification (subject to Sponsor’s approval) as evidence of identity.
“Alternate winner” is defined as the next runner-up entrant that is eligible for the forfeited prize according to the applicable process set forth in these Official Rules. Alternate potential winners will be selected as provided for herein until an eligible prize winner is reached and such eligible prize winner has submitted and returned all necessary documents as provided for herein, unless Sponsor determines otherwise in its sole discretion. Up to three (3) alternate winners may be determined for a given prize (who will be subject to disqualification in the same manner), after which the applicable prize will not be awarded.
Sponsor, Participating Partners, Administrator and the other Promotion Entities shall have no liability for any selected prize winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by any selected prize winner for any reason unless Sponsor, Participating Partners, and/or Administrator and the other Promotion Entities act negligently or willfully.
In the event of a dispute as to any Submission, the authorized account holder of the email address, used to register will be deemed to be the entrant or Finalist (or Demo Finalist) and must comply with these Official Rules. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address account by an Internet access provider or online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the account associated with the submitted address. Each entrant, Finalist and/or Demo Finalist may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder.
No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded.
Sponsor also reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual (and all of his/her Submissions) who is found to be acting in violation of these Official Rules, or to be acting in an unsportsman-like or disruptive manner, or with the intent to disrupt or undermine the legitimate operation of the Contest, or to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person.
Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE THE ENTRY SITES OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE CONTEST MAY BE IN VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK DAMAGES AND OTHER REMEDIES (INCLUDING ATTORNEYS’ FEES) FROM ANY SUCH INDIVIDUAL TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW, INCLUDING CRIMINAL PROSECUTION. No incomplete, forged or other automated Submissions will be accepted. Entries generated by script, macro or other automated means or by any means which subvert the entry process are void. All Entries become the sole property of the Sponsor and will not be returned. Proof of Entry submission does not constitute proof of receipt.
