Mac Tutorial Contest at Macinstruct

by Bruce Stewart

There's a cool Mac educational contest just kicking off over on Macinstruct. The Tutorama contest invites individuals to submit educational tutorials on anything related to Apple hardware and software products. They're looking to find the most innovative and creative step-by-step tutorials, video podcasts, Flash movies, and computer-based trainings on Mac-related topics. There's over $4,000 of prizes including iPods, books personally-signed by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and a Mac Mini. Judges include No Starch Press publisher Bill Pollock, Macworld Senior Editor Dan Frakes, former Apple evangelist Guy Kawasaki, and award-winning author Robin Williams.

These kind of contests can be a win for everybody. The general public gets to find out about great tutorials they might not have otherwise found or heard of, and the tutorial developers can get some nice goodies as well as greater exposure for the best work. I'll keep my eye on this one and report back here on the winners.
