Interested applicants, Microsoft said, are to register for the competition on http:/ /www.imaginecup.com/ and follow up with news and updates about the competition on Imagine Cup Blog.
The devices and services giant said that students have until 12.00am, April 10, 2014 to register for this year’s competition in their three main competitions, Games, Innovation, and World Citizenship.
Accordingly, a team is made of up to four eligible students and a mentor, who advises on the teams’ project.
Each competing team will make an original technology project from start to finish, come up with a great idea, make a plan, build a project, and submit it to Imagine Cup. It can be either purely software or a combination of software and hardware. It needs to use either Windows, Windows Phone, or Windows Azure. (Vanguard)
