Developers Wanted: Apple Announces Dashboard Widget Contest

by , 9:00 AM EST, December 10th, 2004

Apple has announced a Dashboard Widget Contest with a 40GB iPod as a prize. The contest is open to members of the Apple Developer Connection, the company's developer program, and runs from December 9th to January 5th.

Dashboard is one of the flagship features of Mac OS X 10.4, Tiger, which is expected to be released early in 2005. The software allows users run small, dedicated applications, or widgets, and is similar to the functionality provided by Konfabulator. From Apple:

Apple is pleased to announce a second Apple Dashboard Widget Contest. Now through January 5, developers have another chance to win a 40GB iPod and receive public recognition for their work. Enter the Apple Dashboard Widget Contest today to take advantage of this terrific opportunity to begin developing Widgets for Tiger. Entries will be judged on technical excellence, innovation, and ease of use. The contest is open exclusively to Apple Developer Connection members whose memberships include access to pre-release versions of Mac OS X v10.4 Tiger. Submissions must be made between December 9 and January 5, 2005.

You can find more information about the contest at Apple's Developer Web site.

The new contest is exactly like the contest the company ran in November.
