Competition Information

Recommended Posts

Participating in this competition gives you the chance of winning one of two new, unused STM32F746G-Discovery boards.
The goal of the competition is to create a widget. The widget can either be something very generic or a more application specific widget. The only constrain is that it has to be useful in other applications as well.


Basic information:

  • Competition task: Create a widget
  • Competition prize: One of two STM32F746G-Discovery boards
  • Competition end: 2016-08-15 23:59 UTC+01:00



  • Any widget that is not already part of the µGFX library can be submitted.
  • Only the author of the widget is allowed to submit it as an entry to this competition.
  • The widget must work with the most recent release of the µGFX library.
  • You are allowed to use any kind of help (don't miss the creating a widget documentation).
  • The widgets of the winners will be included into the µGFX library. This means that the authors of the widgets have to allow the µGFX developers to re-license the widgets under the µGFX license.
  • The µGFX developers (namely @inmarket and @Joel Bodenmann) are the judges and elect the winners at the end of the competition.



The competition entries will be judged by the following criteria:

  • Stability & Flexibility
  • Documentation
  • Example / Demo
  • Screenshot / Photo / Video of the widget in action
  • Performance

Generic information
We will sent the STM32F746G-Discovery boards to the winners as quickly as possible. However, it will take some time until we include the winning widgets into the official repository. We will get in touch with each widget author individually to follow up on whether additional modifications are required or recommended.
