Entries open for Apple's 2008 design awards

Every Mac developer wants a small, softly glowing cube -- as long as it's not made from unstable isotopes or anything like that. The Apple Design Awards 2008 entry period has now begun; with competition in seven categories this year, including two for the iPhone, it's going to be fun to see what bubbles up to the top at WWDC.

Applications in the following areas can be uploaded and entered before 5 pm May 12:
  • iPhone Developer Showcase
  • Best iPhone Web Application
  • Best Mac OS X Leopard Application
  • Best New Mac OS X Leopard Game
  • Best Mac OS X Leopard User Experience
  • Best Mac OS X Leopard Graphics and Media Application
  • Best Mac OS X Leopard Student Product
Winners get plenty of goodies: WWDC tickets and travel, MacBook Pros, Cinema Displays, iPod touches and iPhones, and (far and away the most valuable) a free mini-booth to exhibit at Macworld Expo 2009. See Apple's official site for all the rules and regulations, and best of luck! (Yes, that's the developer team of 2007 ADA winner Panic giving a full-on geek salute there in the winner's circle. Seems like they're pretty pumped.)
