Yes, the Australian Imagine Cup website is now live, and it looks AWESOME! I worked with Wunderman on this (they also did the Imagine Cup flyers that you plant and grow a tree out of) and I am very happy with the work they've done. Check it out.
The other big news to note is this - Australian Software Design category deadlines are up on this webpage. This is important if you're entering Software Design this year, becaue the new website is the only place where you'll be able to access this information (plus information about the prizes you can win). If you're entering the SD category, you've also got a chance to win a whole bunch of smaller prizes (like t-shirts and promotional prize packs) if you submit progress reports of your entry along the way. Software Design category is alot of hard work, and this is an attempt to reward students who are taking a well-planned, well-considered approach to building their entry rather than leaving it to the last minute.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A TEAM MATE FOR IMAGINE CUP? Alot of people have been asking me about the launch parties so that they can come along and try to meet ome people from their area who they can form a team with. Well, the launch parties will be early in the new year (mid Jan), but in the meantime, if you are looking for an extra one or two teammates, drop me a line.
(By the way, has anyone ever noticed that when your are trying to type 'Imagine Cup', You always have to go back and change the 'U' to a 'u'? i.e. you always type Imagine CUp? Or is that just me? And did you just read this and go and open a notepad window and type 'Imagine CUp' to see if you did the same thing? If you did, I applaud your inquisitive nature :D)
