API Developer Contest: Zazzle + Aviary Mashup

by


What’s better than a single API contest? How about a double API contest! A double API contest means double the fun, double the potential, and of course double the prizes (the prizes are better than double mint gum). We’ve teamed up with Aviary, innovators of an amazing photo effects API, to launch the Zazzle + Aviary content API Developer Contest. Read on to learn more.

The Challenge
Take the power of the Aviary Effects API and the Zazzle Create-a-Product API (Advanced PDF documentation 1, 2, 3) to build an awesome application that allows users to have fun with photos and create products all at once (1,000 bonus points for the developer that integrates a THIRD random API into their application). Easy right? If you’re having trouble coming up with a creative idea, Aviary has a brainstorm list of great ideas to get the 1s and 0s flowing in your head.

The Pay-Off
All valid entrants will be honored in the contest gallery and have a chance to win:

  • Grand Prize: $500 Zazzle gift certificate, $500 in Aviary dollars, contest t-shirt and stickers
  • Runner-Up: $350 Zazzle gift certificate, $350 in Aviary dollars, contest t-shirt and stickers
  • Honorable Mention: $200 Zazzle gift certificate, $200 in Aviary dollars, contest t-shirt and stickers

Get Crackin!
Deadline to enter the contest is July 26th, 2011 at 11:59pm PT

Judges
