Are you the next AppStar? Enter UTSC's mobile app competition, and win big!


Do you ever find yourself saying, “Why isn’t there an app for that?” Do you ever think “I should make an app for that!” Well, here is your chance to put your ideas and talent to the test – and win a cash prize!

Announcing AppStar, the University of Toronto Scarborough’s Mobile App Development Competition. The contest provides UTSC students with an opportunity to turn good ideas into great mobile apps, with a chance to win big cash prizes: $1000 for third place, $2000 for second, and the grand prize, $3000.

Any UofT student taking courses at UTSC can enter. The app must be made for iOS and/or Android, and it has to demonstrably benefit students. Other than that, the design and functionality of the application is up to you.

Additional resources will be made available throughout the contest, including workshops on project planning, developing and testing for iOS and Android. Also, feel free to team up with other students to collaborate on creating an amazing application. Teams can include up to five members.

If you have an idea but don’t know much about coding, come to the AppStar Mixer on March 21, 2012 at 5pm in the Instructional Centre for a chance to have fun, meet new people and possibly recruit team-members. Please sign up for this event here.

Submission deadlines for proposals is April 30. For more information and contest rules, visit
