Now that the jury session is in full effect deciding which of the 15 finalists will get a piece of the $55,000 prize money, we’re taking this “downtime” opportunity to share a few of the Creation Challenge concepts that we thought were great, but came up just shy of the final 15.
These concepts may not have fit the Challenge criteria as well as some others, but we do believe they hold a lot of potential and hope the developers will continue to build and promote these awesome Layar Vision experiences!
Take at look at these three ”Honorable Mention” concepts for the Layar Creation Challenge.

Big news for all you Creation Challenge participants! After we opened the Challenge for submissions recently, we had such a strong response from developers needing more time to build their Vision concepts that we have decided to extend the submission deadline until September 29!
This means you now have two more weeks to turn your Vision concept into a reality! It also means that if you haven’t entered the Challenge yet, you now have enough time to jump in and get crackin’ on your idea!
You’ll want to use this additional time wisely by taking in all the Layar Vision tips you can through our tutorials and sample code as well as the following new resources we’ve created to help you!
Don’t forget about the Introduction to Layar Vision webinar this Friday; it will be especially helpful for developers who are considering entering the Challenge!
Last week we hosted a webinar to help developers with their concepts for the Creation Challenge. We had such a great response from new developers, brands and others who were interested but not yet in the Challenge that we decided to host another webinar for everyone who wants to know more about Layar Vision!
We will be holding our Introduction to Layar Vision webinar this Friday, September 9, at 5pm Amsterdam time (CEST). Both Veteran Layar developers and brand new Layar developers are invited to attend for concept inspiration and use case examples, as are brand managers or others who are considering an augmented reality element within their mobile application.
You don’t have to be part of the Creation Challenge (or even know how to develop a layer) to join the webinar, you just need to be interested. Sign up now!
Now that we’ve released the Layar Vision beta and are well into the Creation Challenge, we want to make sure you have all the tools and knowledge necessary to build immersive experiences and win some of that $55,000 prize money!
We have already provided some tutorials and sample code, but we also want to give you the opportunity to ask non-technical questions and get realtime feedback, so this week we’re hosting a webinar!
Whether you’re having trouble coming up with a concept for the Creation Challenge, you want feedback on your current concept, or you just want to be sure you understand how Layar Vision works, join Layar Strategist King Yiu Chu and Layar Partner Network Manager Ivo van Barneveld this Thursday at 5pm Amsterdam time (CEST) to help you with concepts, strategies and best practices for Layar Vision and the Creation Challenge.
The tips, tricks and expert advice you’ll get from this webinar will surely give you a leg up in the competition, so sign up now!
Now that the Layar Creation Challenge is well underway, we want to make sure you have everything you need to create the most impressive Layar Vision concepts possible! We’ve been busy creating tutorials and updating tools to inspire and assist you with your Creation Challenge projects!
Our beloved tech support manager Xuan created a text tutorial for the wiki on how to build a simple Vision layer. This is the fourth layer creation tutorial Xuan has updated for our API v6.0; you can access all of her wiki tutorials here.
Additionally, freelance layer developer Menno created the Cantine layer (which you may recognize from our Layar Vision video) to demonstate Layar Vision capabilities, and he has provided a downloadable folder with instructions, sample code and images to help you build your own immersive Layar Vision experience to enter in the Creation Challenge!
And finally, if you’re one of the developers using PorPOISe to build your layers you’ll be happy to know that there is now a PorPOISe 1.2 available that supports the v6.0 Layar API! This means that you can now use PorPOISe to build Vision layers for the Creation Challenge! Read the full details and get the download here.
