Intel giving away $29,000 cash to developers for mobile game contest
So, you think you can come up with a great game for Android? According to a new contest sponsored by Intel and The Code Project, create a new NDK-based Android game for IA (Intel Architecture) devices, write an article about it and you can find yourself $25,000 richer. The contest lasts four months, started July 6th and ends November 6th. The winner will be announced exactly a week later. In addition to the Grand Prize of $25,000, each month will see one contestant win $1,000.

To enter, you send an article highlighting the code of your app to contest@codeproject.com. After downloading the template at The Code Project site, you must prove that you tested the app with an x86 emulator system image. You need to explain to the judges your motivation for making the game, a description of it and the technical information. Finally, you have to send by email, the completed template.

According to the website, you will need to download the template, as we've already said. You must read a couple of white papers, "Creating and Porting NDK based Android* Apps for Intel(R) Architecture" and "Installing the Android* SDK for IntelĀ® Architecture". Lastly, you need to test your Android apps on a virtual Intel-Architecture device.

The submissions will be judged at the end of each month by The Code Project., and the Grand Prize will be selected by both The Code Project and an MVP panel that The Code Project will select. The entries will be judged on how closely they adhere to the rules such as "Focus and Scope", quality, coherence, structure and how well the app works on the emulator. The goal, of course, is to get developers writing apps for Intel powered x86 Android devices that could go head to head with the ARM powered Android models.
