It is open to users of the Samsung Smart UX Center, and to anyone who wishes to share their stories and ideas. Participants of the event can submit their entries in two different categories; the “My Eureka Story” and the “My Eureka Idea”. The first category is intended to allow customers to share their real-life experiences with Smart UX apps, and the second category will allow customers as well as dealers to suggest innovative app development ideas.
Beginning from September 1st

Samsung Printing Solutions will focus on the benefits and experience it delivers on a customer’s stand point when reviewing submitted stories and evaluate them based on the following three factors: cost saving, productivity, and workflow improvement. Judges‟ top three stories and app development ideas will be shared through the event page. Also, visitors will be able to vote for their favourites by clicking on the „Like‟ button. Online voting will account up to 50 percent of the overall evaluation. The winners and runners-up of both categories will receive cash prizes, with a combined total of US $33,300 up for grabs.
The winner of the “My Eureka Story‟ will receive a prize of US $3,000 in cash, while 20 second place winners including customers‟ dealers will each receive US $100.
