The Web Directions Code conference kicks off in Melbourne, Australia on May 1-3, 2013 and as part of the conference they'll be holding a Blackberry App Competition for Australian and New Zealand residents. Show the world what you can do with the mobile Web, submit as an entry and you're in plus, thanks to the BlackBerry 10 platform tools, that's hella simple.

You don't even need to be in attendance at the Web Directions Code conference to win. For your efforts, you could win some pretty cool prizes such as BlackBerry Z10 smartphones, upwards of $2000 cash and an all expenses paid trip to BlackBerry Jam Asia 2013.

In addition to the competition, Chris Saunders from BlackBerry will be hosting a portathon at Web Directions in Sydney, from 2pm to 5pm, Friday April 26th. Parties interested in entering the competition can stop by, get some hands on experience with the tools and from there, submit their apps.
