QtForum.org, the independent Qt community Website launched October 2003,
today announced the QtForum.org Developer Contest. The subject for the
contest is edutainment. This QtForum.org Developer Contest is sponsored
by Trolltech as a part of the company's support of the open source community.
The first prize for the QtForum.org Developer Contest is USD 1500, and
the second prize is USD 750. Two third prizes, the Judge's Choice Prize
and the Community Choice Prize, will each be awarded USD 500.
"QtForum.org is responding to the need for a developer community for the
growing number of Qt developers out there," says QtForum.org's Community
Manager Christian Kienle. "The QtForum.org contest aims to bring Qt
developers together and challenge them to be creative with Qt in the
field of edutainment."
Eligible contest entries can be any English language version of an
original "edutainment" software application developed using Qt versions
3.2.3 or later. "Edutainment" software is software written to educate
the users while it entertains them. The software must be licensed under
an Open Source license.
The contest winners will be announced on the QtForum.org and Trolltech
"We are very excited about the open source community's initiative to
establish an independent Qt community Website," said Matthias Ettrich,
Trolltech's Director of Software Development Desktop Platforms. "The
QtForum.org Edutainment Contest will help boost this excellent
initiative and we are looking forward to seeing many new Qt based
applications as a result."
The contest is open to individuals who are independent software
developers or to companies which are software developers. Developers may enter works created individually or in collaboration with
other eligible contestants. The deadline for submitting contest entries
is May 31.
