New Developer Contest: Anything Goes (Ends January 2nd)

3162501186_8379d7b61bWe've had so many great contest entries this year, we wanted to open things up and finish the year right. For this developer contest, the category is "Anything Goes!" Has there been a Twilio-powered app you've wanted to build all year but didn't get a chance to? Are you looking for a chance to get a head start on a project you've planned to start in 2011? Over the next two weeks, build any Twilio-powered app for a chance to win our last Twilio developer contest of 2010! You can build any app at all. If it uses the Twilio API, you're eligible to win.

How do I win?

Step one, build an app using the Twilio API. Step two, submit your entry before January 2nd, 11:59pm PT. You're done! After the contest ends, we'll judge the entries and select a winner based on the best combination of originality, completeness, usefulness and future potential. Bonus points for putting together helpful materials (screencasts, blog posts, etc.) that demonstrate the value of what you've built, or explain how it could become a business someday.

The winner of this contest will receive an unlocked, carrier-independent Google Nexus S and $150 in Twilio credit. Because we expect a lot of entries, we'll also select two runners up to receive $100 in Twilio credit. Entries must be submitted by 11:59pm PT on Sunday January 2nd, 2011. Submit your entry here.

What's This Developer Contest All About?

Each week we announce a new category to encourage developers to try Twilio for different use cases, industries, and integrations.  As a language-agnostic platform for cloud communications, we want to see developers from all backgrounds find success and solve problems with Twilio.  To fire your imagination and reward your efforts, we've run this developer contest for over a year.

If you need any help or want to bounce ideas off our Twilio developers, please join us on our forums or drop a note to When you're done, submit your entry using the official contest submission form.

IMPORTANT: Everyone who has submitted previously and did not win is eligible to resubmit (we love that we make the rules!) so if you built a Twilio app in the past but weren't a winner we hope you'll consider sprucing up you old app for another chance at winning!
