Many people come up with excellent ideas for new Apps but lack the knowledge or skills to make them a reality. Today, the Appys announced their GSK APP-challenge 2014 which will take one of those ideas and bring it to market in a prize package worth €50,000.
Due to them being key growth areas, Apps must relate to one of three categories: Fitness, Medical or Health & Wellness.
“Nothing lends itself better to apps than health and well-being, and the potential to transform lives is immense,” says Aidan Lynch, managing director, GSK Ireland. “We hope the GSK App-challenge will inspire people to create apps that can help people do more, feel better and live longer.”
The GSK App-challenge is open to anyone in Ireland who has an idea for an app and wants to get it made. To enter simply go to www.theappys.ie. Entries are free and the entry form is very simple to use. The deadline for entries to the GSK App-challenge is November 10, 2014 at 10pm.
“The GSK App-challenge is open to anyone who has an idea for an app, or anyone who has started building an app or has already developed an app but wants to improve it. The competition is for individuals, indie developers and student developers only. App development firms cannot enter,” says Stephen Conmy, organiser of the GSK App-challenge and The Appys.
An app development package worth €40k and a media package worth €10k are up for grabs as well as a top of the range tablet computer. The winner of the GSK App-challenge will be crowned at The Appys awards ceremony which takes place at CHQ building, Dublin on November 20, 2014.
“The GSK App-challenge winner will receive huge support when it comes to taking their idea to the next level,” says Owen Cooney, managing director, ProductFitter & Eleks, Ireland. “We are looking forward to seeing creative, useful ideas that can help people in their daily lives.”
