growing number of Qt developers out there," says QtForum.org's Community
Manager Christian Kienle. "The QtForum.org contest aims to bring Qt
developers together and challenge them to be creative with Qt in the
field of edutainment."

Eligible contest entries can be any English language version of an
original "edutainment" software application developed using Qt versions

the users while it entertains them. The software must be licensed under
an Open Source license.

The contest winners will be announced on the QtForum.org and Trolltech
Websites: http://www.qtforum.org and http://www.trolltech.com.

"We are very excited about the open source community's initiative to
establish an independent Qt community Website," said Matthias Ettrich,
Trolltech's Director of Software Development Desktop Platforms. "The
QtForum.org Edutainment Contest will help boost this excellent
initiative and we are looking forward to seeing many new Qt based
applications as a result."

The contest is open to individuals who are independent software
developers or to companies which are software developers. Developers may enter works created individually or in collaboration with
other eligible contestants. The deadline for submitting contest entries
is May 31.
