Published by at

Do you want to change the world while programming your Windows Phone? If so, Microsoft's Image Cup could be for you. An international student developers competition, with strands for Windows Phone and Windows Azure developers, there are places on offer for a trip to the Final in Sydney, Australia in July as well as grants, cash, and other prizes. Given Nokia is a sponsor of the Windows Phone track, there might be a Lumia or two in there.
