TechInAfrica – Finalists of HUAWEI’s global Apps Up Competition has been announced in the South African phase.

The competition spots are reserved for three categories, such as Most Outstanding App, Most Outstanding Game, and Most Socially Impactful App.

The next round will have the finalists to compete in the Regional phase (Middle East, North Africa, and Southern Africa) for the top 20 shortlisted Regional Apps. Voting will be allowed to pick winners, and on 5-19 November, finalists from other global regions will be shortlisted as well.

Winners will be announced near the end of November.

Judge Matsi Modise of SiMODiSA said, “There were some very cool Apps, different spectrums of development, and some cutting edge ideas. I would love to see more women developers next time.”

“The Apps presented were of a high quality and showed real innovation. I believe this contest has highlighted the high level of developers we have among us. The judges were of high quality and a pleasure to interact with,” Judge Ritesh Sewsaran of ABSA said.

Judge Peter Matthaei of Namola commented, “I hope this is the beginning of creating a bit more of an ecosystem in South Africa and a bit more institutional knowledge around how to create Apps.

“The originality is definitely there, the technical skills are definitely there, now we just need to start focusing a little bit more on thinking about how we grow our users and how we engage our users after we’ve acquired them.”
