MySpace Kicks Off Developer Challenge

Today, MySpace began the contest submission period for the MySpace Developer Challenge. The competition is aimed at “encouraging further innovation from the developer community,” according to the company.

“We believe the best onsite and offsite integrations with MySpace are not here yet and the MySpace Developer Challenge intends to find them,” says Amy Walgenbach of the MySpace Developer Platform. “We also want to reward innovative developers big and small and recognize them as much as we can.”

Categories include:

– Most innovative use of real-time stream API
– Best New MySpace App
– Most innovative use of the Open Search API
– Most innovative MySpace Integration on Mobile
– Most innovative use of Photos

On February 24, the contest submission period ends at 11:59 pm in each jurisdiction. The next day, eligible contest submissions will be judged. On March 1, finalists will be contacted to confirm eligibility and obtain releases. On March 10, the grand-prize winners will be announced at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
