Canonical announces the Ubuntu App Showdown – a contest in which participants create an Ubuntu app from scratch in three weeks.
According to the announcement, the winning apps will win prizes, including: a System76 Gazelle Professional laptop and Nokia N9 phone for the gold prize, a System76 Lemur Ultra laptop and Nokia N9 phone for the silver prize, and a Nokia N9 phone for the bronze prize.

After the contest, the community will vote on all of the apps in the Ubuntu Software Center and another three Nokia N9 phones will be awarded.

According to the website, the rules are simple: The contest began on June 18, 2012. From that date, you have three weeks to develop a new app – until July 9, 2012. Canonical strongly recommends, but does not require, that you use Quickly for development. Upon completion of your app, you must submit it to the Software Center.

The website states that completed entries in The Ubuntu App Showdown will be judged on “Appearance, Stability, Platform Integration, Innovation and Scratching an Itch.” You can find complete rules and details at: http://developer.ubuntu.com/showdown/.
