We will publish winning applications in a blog post and on our social media channels. Should you choose to continue to build out your application after the bounty, our team is here to support you. We will work with you to refine your application, publish it on our website, add it to our repository and drive traffic to it. 

You will still have access to all the code, and be the main maintainer if you should choose.
