DonationCoder.com and Borland announced a donationware programming contest featuring Borland's C++ Builder Rapid Application Development tool for Microsoft Windows.
The contest runs for approximately three months, from April 10 to July 14.
Over $15,000 in programming-related prizes will be awarded, including Enterprise and Professional editions of C++ Builder.
Programs will be judged in a variety of categories including small utilities, academic tools, web applications, and more. Judging will be by members of Borland and DonationCoder.com, with public participation.
Winning programs will be prominently spotlighted on the DonationCoder.com website and be made available to the public as donationware. All donations will go directly to the original authors.

Please help spread the news and let fellow programmers know about the contest. Even people new to C++ Builder are welcome to participate.
This forum section is now open for discussion on all issues relating to the contest and C++ Builder. We welcome entrants to make their programs available for public or private beta testing throughout the duration of the contest.
One of the really unique aspects of the contest is that winning entries will be spotlighted on the DonationCoder.com website as donationware and we will try to help authors get donations for their program (all donations will go to the author of course).
