AppCircus comes to Nairobi

We recently received an email from Judith Owigar the Akirachix president informing us of the upcoming AppCircus. This is the first time it is being held in Nairobi. It targets students and as a club and the school we are all invited.

From the Ihub blog:

The traveling showcase of the most creative and innovative apps, AppCircus, will be hosted by the iHub and Akirachix on the 10th of September 2011.

Developers can pitch in front of an international jury, formed by industry experts. The winner of the AppCircus will get an opportunity to be nominated for the Mobile Premier Awards 2012, which are held during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The deadline to submit your application is the 22nd of August!

Akirachix will be taking the lead in this event as part of their Mobile Social Networking activities that are to be done in the mLab in Kenya.

The location will be at the *iHub_Nairobi’s Innovation Hub for the technology community at the 4th floor of the Bishop Magua Centre on Ngong Rd., directly opposite the Uchumi Hyper.

Here are the rules for participation:

  • Submissions and presentations to the AppCircus are FREE and open to any high school/college/university student.
  • Applicants must send one representative person to present the app live on stage.
  • Apps are submitted through the appcircus.com platform.
  • Registration and membership on appcircus is FREE!
  • appcircus.com members need to add the app to their profile before applying to an AppCircus.
  • Each App can only present in one AppCircus, except if it receives a Runnerup Waiver.
  • One app in each AppCircus will be nominated for the pool of apps from which the 20 finalists for the Mobile Premier Awards 2012 will be selected.
  • The app with most votes after the nomination winner, will receive a “Runnerup Waiver”, which allows it to apply again to be selected at another AppCircus.
