SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The App Developers Conference (ADC), in partnership with AppCircus, the unique global traveling showcase of the most innovative and creative apps, is announcing a new app contest, 'ADC Best In Apps.'

All app developers are encouraged to enter their app for free at the ADC Best in Apps submission page - http://appcircus.com/event/adc-best-in-apps - between September 19 and October 15. Finalists will be announced after a jury review period, and the contest will be held November 5 and 6 during the inaugural ADC, being held November 5-7 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Apps will be judged in the following six categories – also themes for the event itself: Entertainment, Enterprise, Health & Wellness, Lifestyle, Brand Marketing and Education. Three finalists from each category will be pre-selected by an international jury, and will present their apps to a panel of industry leaders in front of conference attendees at ADC. A winner will be crowned in each category, and will receive a nomination for the prestigious Mobile Premier Awards, held by AppCircus during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in early 2014.

ADC is an entirely new event from the creators of the acclaimed Game Developers Conference focusing on the very best programming, architecture, UI, marketing and business of apps outside of games. Speakers include notables from Evernote, Dropbox, Six To Start, Netflix, Pandora, Tumblr and a multitude of others. The show is co-located with Game Developers Conference Next – an in-depth event that will feature detailed content about creating the game experiences of the future, from free-to-play through indie and next-gen platforms.

ADC will run November 5-7 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, and the early registration cap of 500 reduced-price attendees is rapidly being reached, so attendees should consider signing up now.  More information is available at the official App Developers Conference website – http://www.adconf.com
