Amazon anncounced the Alexa Skills Challenge for developers in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, and Austria: The Challenge will be an opportunity to create entertaining, engaging, and educational game skills for Alexa and compete for cash prizes. We will sit on the panel of Judges which is made up of four experts in games, voice technology, and skill development.
If you would like to participate, all you need to do is publish an Alexa skill within the Games, Trivia, and Accessories category in the Alexa Skills Store on amazon.de or amazon.co.uk. Your skill can be published in German or English. You can also publish it to both stores and increase your chances of winning one of the grand prizes or a bonus prize.
There are 5 additional bonus prizes for you to build towards. Winners of these bonus prizes will receive €2,500 and an Echo Spot (up to three Echo Spots, if you are participating as a team). They need not be a finalist:
All prizes are split between team members, or hoarded if the winning skill was built by just one person. To be eligible, skills must be submitted in German or English to the Alexa Skills Store on amazon.de and/or amazon.co.uk, and accompanied by a complete submission package. Only residents of the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany and Austria are eligible to participate in the Cchallenge. Developers based in the United Kingdom will receive the cash prizes to the actual exchange rate in British pounds.
