    No, no limit on the number of entries. You can submit several different mobile apps if you want to.

    Is this US only ? Any restrictions in locale ?

    I like the idea, but I think the reward is only targeting one type of developer, the person that has free time on their hands and they see $1,000 as a substantial prize. At least in our field $1,000 could be made in just a few hours time, and to create a win worthy app would take longer, so it doesn't make sense.

    The prize should be $1,000 gift card OR 3 free licenses of CF 11 enterprise. That appeals to the entrepreneur developer, that would be more likely to create something unique and impress, knowing they have 3 servers of software paid if they win, which reduces the amount of capital they need to launch. That would be a far better incentive than $1,000 gift card to some people and Adobe can make it happen.

    @Benny, no restrictions on locale.
    @Shawn, I can understand your point but we wouldn't be able to modify the prize right now. We can consider a licensing prize for a future contest. Good to know your interest, thanks for letting us know.

    Thanks for telling the requirements for this. I knew about this contest before but didn't know about the necessary requirements for this. Now I can try to win rewards.
