Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
There is a great contest going on and there's a ton of cash available for the winners. The General Category Grand Prize is $25,000. First Prize is $15,000 and Second Prize is $10,000. Then there's the AMD Green Category with another Grand Prize of $25,000 and a First Place of $15,000. Last but not least, there's the People's Choice Award of $5000. Do I have your attention? That's a lot of money folks. You'd better be glad I am ineligible or I'd be going after it.
For contest rules, head on over to the "Heroes Happen Here" competition area and check out the rules.
Here's part of the description, "Seeking talented filmmakers to celebrate Technology’s unknown crusaders. Discover, Dream, or animate the stories of people who are using technology to find solutions that better the world around us. To qualify for judging in the General Award category, films must relate a story of a Technology Hero who uses Microsoft server and developer tool technologies to make their world a better place. To qualify for judging in the Green Award category, films must related a story of a Technology Hero who uses both Microsoft server and developer tool technologies, and AMD technologies to lead the world to energy efficiency and conservation."
