The AppsUP 2021 will now have the Asia Pacific  (APAC) edition this year wherein contestants across this region can showcase their skills to be the sole winner of USD 200,000. It will separately cover five regions including APAC, Europe, Latin America, Mainland China, the Middle East, and Africa.

In addition to the cash awards, AppsUP 2021 offers the chance to an accelerated path to the third-largest mobile ecosystem. It will provide a stepping stone for developers to enter the global market.

By joining the contest and onboarding their apps to AppGallery, it is a launchpad for them to access over 730 million Huawei global smartphone users.  As a result, it will increase exposure to potential partners and investors.

The goal of this contest is to promote the adoption and integration of HMS Core Kits among developers to create more apps., Director of APAC Huawei Consumer Cloud Service Shane Shan explained, 

In Huawei, we believe in building a fully inclusive digital society, where technology is for everyone. Through our accessible platforms, development tools, and technical resources, we hope to empower all levels of developers so that they can showcase their capabilities to the world. Hence, in AppsUP 2021, we have two times the number of award categories, with new awards specially created to recognize student developers, female developers, and budding developers who are new to the HMS mobile ecosystem.

For 2021, the APAC edition will have 10 award categories: Best App, Best Game, Best Social Impact Award, Honorable App Award, and Most Popular App Award; as well as new categories including AppGallery Rising Star Award, Best Fintech Innovation Award, Best HMS Core Innovation Award, Excellent Student Award, and Tech Women’s Award.

Huawei will select 20 exceptional apps based on characteristics like social value, business value, user experience, and innovativeness. Those who will participate in APAC can expect a wide array of technical support. They will also enter workshops with hands-on coaching from Huawei's engineers and guest judges.

How to join AppsUP 2021?

All mobile app developers and app owners, whether students, professionals, startups, or businesses may participate in this innovation contest. However, they must be based in the APAC region and their submitted apps must be integrated with at least one HMS Core Kit to be eligible.
