Philippsburg and Oslo February 9, 2004
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 USD1500, and the second prize is USD750. Two Third prizes, the Judge?s Choice Prize and the Community Choice Prize, will each be awarded USD500.
"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 user 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 Websites: http://www.qtforum.org
"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.
