the new boxee API enables developers to build and publish apps for boxee users. while people are working on a variety of boxee apps, we thought it would be a good idea to provide some extra incentive for the developers.
the boxee dev challenge will have 3 categories: Video, Music and Photos. in each category we will have a People's Choice award and a Judge's Choice award:
People's Choice Award: Drobo, bit.ly/boxeedevchallenge-peopleschoice
Judge's Choice Award: Sony Bravia XBR9 46", bit.ly/boxeedevchallenge-judgeschoice
the deadline for submitting your application is June 14th at 11:59pm PT, but we encourage you to submit early and often as we'll be talking up cool applications as they come in.
voting will take place between June 15th - June 22nd.
on June 23rd will have a boxee event in San Francisco (RSVP @ bit.ly/boxeedevchallenge-rsvp
) announcing the People's Choice and our esteemed judges will choose a winner from the 10 most popular apps in each category.
the judges at the event will be:
