Imagine Cup (www.imaginecup.com) is an annual worldwide student competition with categories ranging from digital arts to software design. More than 300 000 students from over 140 countries entered the competition in 2009. As with the Olympics, Imagine Cup finalists compete at the world finals, which are held in a different country each year.

 

For Imagine Cup 2010, programmers, artists and technologists from 16 years onwards are invited to submit innovative projects with important topic: “Imagine a world where technology helps solve the toughest problems facing us today” and to use United Nations Millenium Development Goals as a guiding light.

 

Microsoft Switzerland will award the best Swiss competitors across all categories at the local finals in May 2010. Swiss Software Design category winners will be awarded also by Hewlett-Packard (Schweiz) GmbH and with a Microsoft sponsored trip to world finals in Warsaw in summer of 2009.
