Hi folks,

in what strikes me as an interesting approach, the Instituto Nacional de  
Consumo in Spain is running a competition [1] for a re-design of their  
site. The first prize is 9,000 Euros (on current exchange that's somewhat  
more than USD 10,000), and the second prize 3,000. The winners agree to  
hand over their work to be used in the redesign with no further payment (a  
home page and an interior page with the components - more or less a home  
page and a template...), the rest get their work back.

The criteria are pretty straightforward - you have to maintain the  
official shield and colours, it must work in IE 5 and Netscape 4.5 (and  
up), and it has to meet WCAG. (Their explanation is a bit tortuous, since  
they have to explain themselves in Spanish, but that's what it boils down  
to). They don't say to what level.

Sorry, but if you're not a European resident it seems you are not eligible.
