Write a Development Article, Win a Free ‘Aspire Swatter 2004’ Copy

Are you a Java or a .NET/Mono/Portable.NET developer? Then you might be interested in this competition that could help you win a prize that’s worth over $3000 US.

Regarding the Competition

Basically, all you need to do is write a development/tutorial article that is more or less in accordance with our article guidelines and email it to us. It can be any kind of development article (including tutorials) for any programming language. The reason we ask for development articles in particular is because this prize will mostly benefit developers (and teams of developers as it is multi-user and it comes with a 25-seat license and full support for it).

Some additional notes:

  • If you are not a native english speaker don’t worry too much, we can have it proofread.

  • You can send more than one articles.

  • OSNews reserves the right to publish or to not publish the articles submitted. Before publication some editing might occur for content and clarity (this later editing has no effect in the actual competition).

  • The articles should be original articles, not published anywhere elsewhere.

  • Extra “points” for editors submitting subjects that we haven’t posted so far

  • Any articles that exhibit this text-formatting problem seen here will NOT be elligible for the prize.

  • Again, please make sure you read our article guidelines before submitting, because all the rest “competition rules” are described there.

  • You have a bit less than a week to finish up your article and send it over to us in order to be elligible for the prize. Last day of accepting entries will be the 11:45 PM of 11th of April 2004 (Pacific time). Of course, you can always submit your article for publication on a later date if you are not interested in the competition.

    We will receive the article submissions and our team of editors will pick the most interesting/well-written/original one. The winner will be announced at the beginning of next week. The prize is electronically shipped.
