Imagine Cup 2012

Shayma, the geeky Kuwaiti lady who brough you BarCamp, has asked me to bring your attention to Imagine Cup 2012.

Imagine Cup is an annual worldwide competition held by Microsoft for student between the age of 16 to 26 years old. Kuwaiti participants would go to Dubai and compete against other students from around the Gulf region, and the top three teams would advance to the worldwide finals (hosted in a different country each year). Last year, a team from AUK represented Kuwait in the worldwide finals in New York.

This year, for the first time, Imagine Cup will be hosting a local competition in Kuwait, and the team that wins first place in the software design category will advance to the worldwide finals in Sydney, Australia!

Also for the first time, Zain will be sponsoring a Mobile Development Contest for Windows Phone 7. Winners will not advance to the worldwide finals, but will receive all sorts of gifts and prizes from Zain.

Don’t miss this opportunity; go to ImagineCupGulf.com and register before 28th February. The finals will be held on 12th April, 2012 at The Regency Kuwait and attendance is open to all.
