Telenor Pakistan djuice Apportunity competition ended with an award distribution ceremony. Apportunity invited students from different universities to create mobile phone applications (apps) in different categories. This year Apportunity attracted 1700 plus registrations from top eight universities across Pakistan. 83 apps were published and promoted for almost three months. The winners were selected on the basis of most downloaded apps.
The winners of the competition were awarded with laptops, smart phones and tablets. Karachi University with highest number of apps submissions was awarded high end computer for their lab. To improve the quality of app submission, djuice has partnered with Qualcomm, Nokia, and Google who helped in conducting workshops across different universities in Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad which was open for students to attend.
Speaking on the occasion Usman Javaid, Director Marketing Telenor Pakistan said, “Apportunity provided a chance to our youth to develop apps that can be published globally. In the 2nd phase we have paid extra attention towards student engagement. We have involved the bloggers community to amplify this campaign and improve quality of registrations. Telenor Pakistan will continue to provide such opportunities to the talented young population as they are agents of change.”
