The developers of our 5 top picks will receive travel and accommodation funding for the conference, a 1-hour private mentoring slot with a Nextcloud developer and a design review with a Nextcloud designer! And on top of that, the developer(s) who build the winning app win 500 euro and a Nextcloud mug!
Rules are rules!
Just publish your new app anytime after this announcement in the app store, until August 30, and you automatically participate in the contest 😉
On August 30 we will nominate up to 5 apps, who will receive travel reimbursement for flight/train and hotel for up to 3 people who contribute to each app. We decide the top 5 based on the idea and the implementation – of course, the app doesn’t have to be perfect or fully finished by August 30!
The final winning app will be decided upon the conference so you can still improve your app after August 30, right up until October 1st when we will pick the winning team and invite them on stage!
A team of Nextcloud GmbH engineers will vote and the app store score will be taken into account. The app that has the highest average score will be the winning app!
We are ready to help you. There is a dedicated community chat with Nextcloud developers and community members, and there is also a forum category that is watched by Nextcloud developers where you can post your questions about development.
Are you new to Nextcloud app development? Here is a page that helps you getting started.
To upload your app, you can find the instructions here. Interested in building a mobile app for Android or iOS, or an app for the desktop? Cool! That works for us, too: you are 100% included in the contest!

As part of Schleswig-Holstein's state digitization strategy, the state chancellery has announced they will work with Nextcloud to develop AI for working with government documents. This comes just after we announced the first private AI assistant last weekend with Hub 6. The German state already uses Nextcloud and their AI strategy aligns with our work on ethical, local AI technologies.
