Apple has officially announced the Eighth Annual Apple Design Awards, a program designed to acknowledge the best development in the Mac OS X market. Part of this year's World Wide Developer Conference, the Apple Design Awards will acknowledge seven winners in seven categories, along with seven runners-up.
Winners earn a hardware prize and a trophy, as well the right to advertise the award when marketing the product. The hardware prize package is a 17" PowerBook, along with a 23" Cinema Display HD (along with an ADC/DVI adapter). The winner in the Student category gets the PowerBook and travel and lodging to the WWDC itself. From the WWDC site:
Announcing the Eighth Annual Apple Design Awards, focused exclusively on Mac OS X, a super-modern operating system that combines the power and stability of UNIX with the simplicity and elegance of the Macintosh.

The Mac Observer Spin:We definitely like this program. Rewarding excellence is good for Apple, good for the platform, and good for consumers. Better yet, this is the kind of program where small developers can compete head to head with the big boys (and girls). To most of those smaller developers, the hardware prize is significant, and the right to advertise their products as winners could be the difference between a good year and a great year.
