It's Innovator Time!

by Derrick Story
Mac Newsletter for 06/06/2003

Dear Mac Reader,

We're gearing up to begin judging for the second Mac OS X Innovators contest, and I want to give you a brief update.

The deadline for entry is Monday, June 16, which is right around the corner. If you've participated in the first contest, and haven't entered again, I'd urge you to do so. This round of entries has a completely different personality than the first contest, and there's still room for interesting ideas.

And if you are going to enter, or re-enter, be sure to look over the description of your software closely before adding it to the entry form. An interesting, well-written description helps attract the attention of the judges.

Finally, remember that the judges are keeping track of entries that shine, but that might not make first or second place. At the Mac OS X Conference in October we're going to award Honorable Mentions to distinguished entries throughout the three contests.
