If you’re a hacker who would like to showcase your talents, Nokia is hosting the Nokia Future Capture competition. Here, you will get to hack a Lumia 1020, a Windows Phone handset like the Lumia 925 but with a 41-megapixel camera, to win prizes.

On the Nokia developers’ website, the Finnish firm announced, “Dream up imaging apps and hacks that make the most of our amazing new device for your chance to be one of the first to get access to the phone and get global exposure for your talents.”

What does the competition require? Nokia says, “We want you to push the limits of imaging too, think outside the box, and create apps worthy of the phone’s unique capabilities.”

What prizes are up for grabs? Nokia says, “The 10 finalists will fly to the event in Lund and will be amongst the first to get their hands on the Nokia Lumia 1020.”

For the “1st & 2nd runners-up,” Nokia says, “The runners-up will get a Nokia Lumia 1020 and their creation will be showcased at a Nokia event.”

For the “Top prize,” Nokia says, “The winner of the Hackathon will get a Nokia Lumia 1020 and a trip with VIP treatment to an upcoming Nokia event, where the creation will also be showcased. The app will be promoted via several online Nokia channels, as well as on Windows Phone Store.”
