The Linux Foundation, which is responsible for the project, has just announced a Tizen Developer Challenge that starts now and ends on November 1, 2013. Developers can submit as many apps as they can afford to code, and hope that one or more gets to the top of the heap.

The best app gets US$200,000, with another US $50,000 tacked on for the best HTML5 app. That top prize goes to the best game app, with the top, non-game app getting US$120,000,
