Summer Programming Contest opens for entries

Six weeks ago, we announced the launch of our Summer Programming Contest for Raspberry Pi users around the world who are 18 and under and in education. There are two age categories; the first prize in both categories is $1000, with five runners-up prizes of $200 in each category. We’re happy to announce that you can now submit your entries. To do so, you should:

  1. Download and print out a copy of the one-page entry form.
  2. Fill in your details and those of your school or college.
  3. E-mail a scanned copy of the form to [email protected].

Your entry itself should consist of a single .zip or .tgz archive which we can unpack into and run from the home directory of the pi user on a fresh Raspbian “wheezy” install. If your archive is less than 1MB in size, you may attach it to your entry email, otherwise please provide a URL from which we can download it.

Entries close on 1 September 2012, so you still have time to whip something up, even if you’ve not started yet.
