AT&T today announced its Fast-Pitch Platinum Awards contest will return to CTIA Wireless 2009 in Las Vegas on April 1-2. The contest, in its fourth year, is hosted by devCentral, AT&T's official resource for development.
The contest is designed to identify the country's most innovative wireless applications. Developers of the best applications, content, and enterprise solutions will be rewarded with cash prizes, given the opportunity to go to market with AT&T and earn the title of 2009 Fast-Pitch Platinum Award winner.
AT&T will award a total of $70,000 in cash prizes, including $25,000 and inclusion in an AT&T distribution channel for first-place winners in the consumer and enterprise categories. Two runners-up in each of those categories will win $5,000.
Fast-Pitch sessions will take place at CTIA Wireless 2009 from April 1-2 in Las Vegas. The deadline for submissions is March 10. Developers can enter only one contest category. An AT&T representative will contact presenters in mid-March to schedule Fast-Pitch meetings. Those invited to present will have five minutes to pitch their applications to a consumer panel of judges and 10 minutes to present to an enterprise panel of judges in private meeting rooms. Content and applications must be presented on a working handset.
