I thought I'd forward this on because the competition rules explicitly state
that entries written with PyQt are acceptable.

QtCentre Programming Contest 2008 - http://contest.qtcentre.org
April 7th, 2008. QtCentre today launches the second edition of the Qt
Programming Contest, the only programming contest focused on the Qt/Qtopia
community. Last year a range of innovative Qt-based applications were
awarded with various electronic devices - Qtopia(R) enabled mobile phones,
laptop, recreational devices, various books on software development and
more. Perhaps more important, the contestants were shown to the Qt
community and new contacts between developers were made.
"I participated in the contest last year primarily for getting
expert validation and review for my project (GCF - Generic Component
Framework). After the contest, I got a sound validation and more.
GCF won 3rd place in Helper Library category, people started using the
project, I met a lot of wonderful people later that year when I presented
the project at FOSS.IN, I might get a chance to present GCF at aKademy
this year, and I am also able to extract commercial benefit out of the
project through the consulting work we do from our company (VCreate
Logic). QtCentre Programming Contest is a great platform to showcase
code; and even if you lose you win - atleast someone highly experienced
in the field would have taken a real good look at your code."

This year's contest accepts entries in the following categories:
collaboration, education, project management, automation, demo, plasmoid
and newcomer. The QtCentre staff are looking forward to a new range of
contestants that will surprise the community with their quality, innovation
It would not have been possible to hold the contest without the
generous sponsors contributing judges and prizes.
"We are excited to be a sponsor of QtCentre's Qt Programming Contest

in which KDAB is proud to be a leader."

"Trolltech's Qt makes it possible for developers to concentrate on the
creative process. I regard the QtCentre Programming Contest as an arena
for developers to inspire each other while using Qt for new and
interesting purposes. Qt allows developers to be innovative and to
program, only once, a range of different applications that work across
desktops and devices."
