The first International Wikinews Writing Contest (IWWC) is now underway.
If you are a contestant, please register (link) your contributions every
day in the log, e.g. under
for today. If you are not a contestant, you can still sign up today
without incurring article debt -- after then, every day you wait is an
additional article you have to write later.
The prizes so far:
- 300$ in cash for the 3 winners
- A full distribution of SuSE Linux 9.3 on DVD
- 3 basic web site designs
- A free MediaWiki site hosted by myoo.de
- An Opera 8 registration code
- Lots of GMail invites :-)
Please continue to spread the word about the contest to your local
language editions. Let's hope that it becomes a truly international event.
