Appcelerator is holding a contest for people using their platform to build mobile apps. $15,000 first place prize and a meeting with VC's. Obviously, this is only relevant to people using their Titanium platform for building mobile apps, but maybe you're out there.

Rules here. Contest ends September 30, 2012
