O’Reilly & Associates is accepting entries for the second round of the Mac OS X Innovators Contest.
The contest, sponsored by the Apple Developer Connection (ADC), seeks Mac OS X applications, plug-ins, user interface widgets or other original software. Entries are judged on ease of use, adherence to the Mac OS X Human Interface Guidelines, use of Mac OS X technologies and innovation.
First prize, valued at approximately US$5,000, is an ADC Premier membership, a full pass to the O’Reilly Mac OS X Conference in Santa Clara, California (which will be held October 27-30) and a one-year subscription to O’Reilly’s online book service. Entries must be submitted by June 16. Winners will be announced at the O’Reilly Open Source Convention in Portland, Oregon, July 7-11, 2003.
Round one of the Mac OS X Innovators Contest wrapped up with the announcement of the winners at the O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference on April 24. Brent Simmons’ NetNewsWire and Robb Beal’s Spring were chosen from a field of over 100 entries.
ADC is Apple’s program for Mac developers to help them build and promote Mac compatible products. Different membership options are available at different price points.
