About the contest MiniBar is looking for developers who will create innovative apps mashing, mixing, streaming, enriching music, pictures and video content from the likes of Sony Music ad Universal.

There is a total of £7,000 up for grabs and the chance to connect with and impress major content providers with your work.

Through this contest ALL entrants will get the opportunity to become part of IC tomorrow testbed environment - a Technology Strategy Board initiative - and get the chance to showcase their inventiveness and build valuable relationships for the future. The goal is to develop applications that make use of the content in an innovative, experimental or simply put, fun way, and to use IC tomorrow as the testing ground to evaluate their potential.

Don’t pass up this opportunity to get your talent recognized.
