Before you party with us and RJD2 at Expand NYC in November (which is free, by the way!), you may first want to finalize those hardware designs. The deadline for Insert Coin entries is fast approaching, and you wouldn't want to miss the chance to win up to $25,000 to fund the project of your dreams. We'll only be accepting submissions until September 26th, after which we'll choose 20 contenders and whittle it down to 10 semi-finalists by your vote. These lucky 10 will receive $1,000 in travel stipend, so they can showcase their creations at the Expand show floor. We'll then let our panel of judges and you, our readers, decide which masterpiece (or two, if your tastes differ greatly) deserves a financial boost and time in the spotlight.

As we've mentioned in the past, the Readers' Choice will take home $15,000, while the Judges' Choice will get $10,000 to use however they want. So, make sure to read our Insert Coin submission guidelines in between putting those final touches to your work, and then fill out our entry form to make it official. Hope to see you in New York!
