Contest Details

GameDev.net is pleased to announce the QUALCOMM BREW OpenGL ES Game Development Contest, sponsored by QUALCOMM CDMA Technologies.

Vital Information
  • Theme: OpenGL ES 3D content for cell phones
  • Description: Develop 3D content in one of three categories, using QUALCOMM's BREW SDK and OpenGL ES extension.
  • Recommended Level: Anyone
  • Contest Start Date: August 11, 2004
  • Final Deadline: 6pm PST, November 30, 2004

Contest Rules
  • To be eligible for the contest, participants shall develop content in any one or more of the three categories for BREW® using OpenGL ES APIs (compiled according to the OpenGL ES 1.0 specification) commercially available for phones containing a QUALCOMM CDMA ASIC.
  • The content must be (i) an original work of authorship, (ii) run on at least one of the specified QUALCOMM CDMA Mobile Station Modem(tm) (MSM)(tm) ASICs (MSM6100(tm), MSM6250(tm), MSM6500(tm), MSM6550(tm)) and/or the BREW SDK, and (iii) fully support at least the English language.
    Note that all development for this contest can be done on a Windows PC using the BREW SDK.
  • The content must be received before 6:00 PM PST (Pacific Standard Time) on Nov 30, 2004. No late entries will be accepted.
  • The content must not be subject to restrictions which would inhibit QUALCOMM’s use or distribution of the content.
  • By submitting an entry, you are agreeing to the full terms and conditions set forth by the Offical Rules.
  • In order to run on the target hardware, entries should use the following guidelines as performance limits:
    • 100K tris/sec
    • 75K textured tris/sec
    • 4M pixels/s
    • QVGA display (320x240)
    • target frame rate of 15 of 30 fps
    • total memory size: ~1M
  • Entries should be built and tested using the 6550 device. (The files in the archive should be extracted to the BREW SDK's devices directory.)

  • Entries will be judged in the following three categories: 3D Games, 3D Screen Savers (a non interactive 3D demo), and 3D Demos (must have interaction with the scene or objects in the scene).
  • Judges will be appointed by QUALCOMM by the contest's completion.
