The MoMinis Studio is a free development engine pitched at developers in the Flash, PC and mobile sectors.
Its GameCast competition, which has been launched in tandem with ME and GetJar, will offer $15,000 in total prizes plus a distribution deal for the winner.
As the deadline draws closer, MoMinis has arranged three webinars to address the issue of fragmentation.
Eyal Rabinovich, co-founder of MoMinis, said: "Building a mobile game is usually a long and arduous task with all the technical considerations involved such as graphics, memory capacities, input methods, and countless other components.
"In addition, there is also the issue of fragmentation in the mobile market which forces developers to make many version of their game to operate on various platforms and devices."
