Corona Labs logoLast week we launched the Public Beta of Corona’s Graphics 2.0 engine, enabling you to produce cinematic-quality graphics in your apps. Since launch we’ve been hinting at an elusive Graphics 2.0 contest and we’re finally ready to announce the details.

We invite you to unleash your creativity: use the functionality of Graphics 2.0 in your app or a demo, and you could win a Corona Enterprise license or an iPad Mini!

Whether you’re creating unique shapes, strokes or images, applying filter effects, or developing never before seen 2.5D effects, we invite you to participate! For inspiration, check out these samples from one of our talented Graphics 2.0 Beta testers.
