TAMPA, FL (June 11, 2015) — GTE Financial, one of the Tampa Bay area’s largest credit unions, has announced its 2015 “Got Game” competition. The competition challenges developers to create an application for Android and/or iOS platforms. The winner will be awarded $10,000 plus residual earnings once the app has been released to the public.

“As a leader in introducing innovative products and services to our members, we’re pleased to announce our 2015 Got Game competition,” said Joe Brancucci, president and CEO of GTE Financial. “Last year’s winning app is now available in the Apple and Android Play store, and this is another great opportunity for both new and veteran gaming developers to have fun and take their ideas to market.”

Submitted mobile apps must be completely original and never before published, fully developed and functioning, and be a product suitable for GTE Financial branding and ownership.  Apps may be either entertaining or pragmatic in function. Submission guidelines and official rules are available and contestants are urged to read them carefully before submitting their entry.

Submissions must be received by Nov. 6, 2015, and will be judged on creativity, ease of use, brand alignment, market differentiation, sustainability, user benefit, entertainment value, user adoption and monetization potential.
