Imagine Cup official website just announced 4 categories for Imagine Cup 2012 which will be held at Australia. They are Software Design, Game Design (Xbox/Windows), Game Design (Phone) and IT Challenge. For those who are interested to join IT Challenge, you better act fast as IT Challenge round one end earlier than any other categories. Are you looking for other categories like side award? They are not announced yet, but I’m sure Imagine Cup will reveal more and more categories in the future.
The theme for Imagine Cup 2012 is “Imagine a world where technology helps solve the toughest problems”. Imagine Cup challenge student to solve the toughest problems in United Nations Millennium Development Goals which help to create a better world. Remember to check out the MDG to make sure your idea is fit for the MDG problem.

[Update 1] : What happen to Embedded Development, Game Design (Web) and Digital Media this year? Embedded Development is combined with Software Design while Game Design (Web) and Digital Media was removed in Imagine Cup 2012. This is kind of sad.
