02-05-2010, 07:56 PM
Due to popular demand, the 2010 HASTAC/MacArthur Foundation Digital Media and Learning Competition has been re-opened to NEW applicants for one more week! :star:

This year's Competition has a game-specific category (Game Changers (http://www.dmlcompetition.net/game_changers.php)). We're looking for creative levels designed with either LittleBigPlanet (or Spore Galactic Adventures) that offer young people engaging game play experiences and that incorporate and leverage principles of science, technology, engineering, and math for learning. Applicants can win $5,000-$50,000.

The application system is open now! (http://www.dmlcompetition.net/application.php)

For more information about this year's Competition, please see http://www.dmlcompetition.net. The first-round application just asks for 300-word description of your idea, so it's very easy to apply.

Please reply to this post if you have questions and I'll do my best to answer. Good luck!

Darn I wanted to enter that but have only just seen this thread. I guess time is up now ??

Did anyone enter this thing besides me? I saw less than 100 submissions on the public commenting pages, and only about 3 of them had more than 4 comments about them. I thought there would be a lot more entries... am I missing something? My entry is finished and published. It's called Aeon Quest: Abduction (Episode 1) I would love to see other entries to know what I'm up against.

Something tells me my creating skills aren't up to the task for this, but I would be very interested in checking out the top entries.

Yur, I only just found out about this, darn :(

Its over? I would have loved to do this!

I would've loved too... :(

But the second round is about to end so I guess it's over now. Anyway, this one sounds interesting, you have to make a 3-minutes video, and a full budget and budget narrative.

Cdubb024, if you entered, do you think you could tell us what does this second round consist in ? This is puzzling me.
