Develop a Fennec Add-On, Win Great Prizes


Development for Firefox Mobile, which is called Fennec on Android, is really heating up.  Mozilla wants it to be a killer web browser, so it has been in process for quite a while now.  Mozilla is inviting developers all over the world to submit innovative add-ons for Firefox Mobile (both Maemo and Android).

They are looking for entrants in the following areas:

  • Sports/Games
  • Commerce/ Shopping
  • Geolocation
  • Productivity
  • Sharing/Social
  • Novelty/Innovation
  • There will be a panel of judges from all sorts of technical expertise backgrounds.  They invite developers from all backgrounds and levels of experience to submit an add-on.

    Of course there are some incentives.  The grand prize winner gets a trip to Barcelona to attend the Mobile World Congress with a four night hotel stay and

  • $1000 in cash
  • Android or Maemo phone of your choice
  • Placement on the Firefox for mobile Start Page
  • Showcased in a Featured Add-ons video distributed across Mozilla channels
  • Blog post and Rock your Firefox spotlight
  • Sounds pretty good, huh?  You have to enter before January 7, but if you submit before December 17 you will receive a limited edition Firefox 4 beta t-shirt.
