Contest invites content creators from around the world to submit themes to Themes Studio as Cyanogen gears for launch of new Themes app for Cyanogen OS.
Cyanogen Inc. has just launched a Themes Design Challenge, inviting artists and content creators to submit original theme packs for the Cyanogen operating system, the OS that comes pre-installed on mobile devices. Participants can enter designs that customize nearly all components of the mobile user interface, including wallpapers, icons, fonts, boot animations, and controls. Watch the new trailer featuring Themes by Cyanogen below, which highlights the level of theming possible through Cyanogen’s upcoming Themes app.
Participants can submit their designs via Cyanogen’s initial release of Themes Studio, which today is an online tool to upload and publish themes content. Cyanogen is currently working on other features of the Themes Studio to make it easier for content creators to design and publish themes.
Qualified theme packs submitted to the Themes Design Challenge will be made available via the release of Cyanogen’s new Themes app, which will come preloaded on select handset launches pre-installed with Cyanogen OS. The Themes app will have new features that make it easier for users to discover, select and install individual theme components for deep customization. The first release of the Themes app will come pre-loaded on the device from the new online brand ‘YU’ owned by YU Televentures, a wholly owned subsidiary of Micromax. More details to follow in December.
The Themes Design Challenge ends on December 14th at 5PM Pacific Time. A panel of judges at Cyanogen Inc. will vote on the top three (3) winning entries based on key criteria: creativity and uniqueness of design, artistic expression and visual effects, and completeness of required design elements. Contest rules can be found at http://www.cyngn.com/legal/themes-contest-rules. Winners will receive a prize pack comprised of Cyanogen branded gear and a device of their choice (from two device options) to be announced with the winners in December.
