When you submit, please also include your name (and company name if applicable), a phone number, and address.
You have two options to submit your app. You can either submit your code to us or give us a copy of your app provisioned for ad hoc distribution. If you choose to do ad hoc distribution you will find the UDIDs you need to provision it for below. Judging will take place this month and winners will be announced October 1st.

2.To display your application artwork within iTunes, save a 512×512 .png at the root of your app bundle prior to building. Name the file ‘iTunesArtwork’.
3.Build your application in Xcode using the build process described in the ‘Building your Application with Xcode for Distribution’ section.
4.To share your application, provide both the compiled application binary AND the Ad Hoc Distribution Provisioning profile to the owners of the devices specified in the Ad Hoc Distribution Provisioning Profile.
5. Recipients of the .app bundle and .mobileprovision file can drag both files onto the iTunes icon in the dock and sync their device to install. Both the application and the Ad Hoc Distribution Provisioning Profile will be installed on the device. Windows users should drag both the application and the Ad Hoc Distribution Provisioning Profile into the Library section of iTunes and then sync their device to install.
