Make a new Nokia ringtone, win $10,000 Finnish mobile giant wants a new take on its iconic tone.
Back in the '90s, when Nokia was clearly king of the industry, its ringtones were heard almost everywhere. Mobile phones only came with a certain amount of tones that you could choose from, and so a lot of Nokia's tones became very familiar to people.

Now Nokia is offering $10,000 to whoever can compose their next tone.

"Nokia Tune is one of world's most recognized audio brand assets and is estimated to be heard over one billion times a day. Nokia is launching a global crowdsourcing campaign to find a fresh version of the Nokia Tune. This is the first time Nokia is inviting people to work with the iconic tune with the winning tune to be placed next to the standard Nokia Tune in a selection of the company 2012 product portfolio. The tune should be fresh, expressive, original, creative yet distinctively a Nokia Tune. All collaborations are welcome"

Those were dark days.

I've got an idea for their new ringtone...complete silence; that way, everyone has to change it and we don't hear the same old annoying ringtones all the time.
