To encourage both companies and individuals to add new content and features onto its platform, boxee launched app development challenge that will culminate with a boxee meetup in San Francisco on June 23rd.

011 Boxee’s App Development Challenge

Here you have some details:

The boxee dev challenge will have 3 categories: Video, Music and Photos.

In each category we will have a People’s Choice award and a Judge’s Choice award:

People’s Choice Award: Drobo + 4TB from Seagate
Judge’s Choice Award: Sony Bravia XBR9 46″

The deadline for submitting your application is June 14th at 11:59pm PT, but we encourage you to submit early and often as we’ll be talking up cool applications as they come in.

Voting will take place between June 15th – June 22nd.

On June 23rd will have a boxee event in San Francisco (RSVP here) announcing the People’s Choice and our esteemed judges will choose a winner from the 10 most popular apps in each category.

The judges at the event will be:
Veronica Belmont – Tekzilla, Qore
Ryan Block – GDGT, former EIC Engadget
Cali Lewis – host of geekbrief.tv
