Evernote launches developer competition to spur addon growth

Evernote has today launched the Evernote Developer Competition that offers a range of prizes to developers who build addons, or integrations, and submit them to the contest.

Evernote has invested $100,000 in prize money in the contest, with the first prize winner taking home $50,000 — or enough to help a fledgling developer bury himself away for a year on the project of his choice.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Six finalists will receive another $5,000 each, and special prizes exist for the Student and Wildcard categories at $10,000 a pop.

It’s not often you see a company pouring so much money into a competition, in what looks like an aggressive move to encourage competition and innovation in their addon directory, the Evernote Trunk.

The winners will be announced at the Evernote Trunk Conference, which is a one-day event for developers who have invested in Evernote as a platform.
