  • Brief description of the app
  • Description of the problem the app solves and how it does so
  • Brief analysis of the current market and competitive landscape

The top contestants will move on to the semi-finals. Semi-finalists are expected to submit a wireframe based on their concept. These wireframes will be created digitally with the support from the Messapps team.

The wireframes will be judged based on their quality and absence of logic flaws.

Finalists will work closely with the Messapps team to develop designs based on the submitted wireframes.

Once completed, designs will be transformed into interactive prototypes and uploaded online. Finalists will then participate in a live pitch on May 1st. Winners will be announced on May 4th.


Every idea submitted to the Mission: Appossible contest will be eligible to participate in the People’s Choice award, running from March 9th to April 28th. The Top 5 apps will receive special recognition and a special prize pack.
