The Linden Prize: $10 000 US for good works

Linden Lab have announced the establishment of The Linden Prize.

Its purpose is to reward a Second Life presence that:

“achieves tangible, compelling results outside of Second Life”, is “distinctive, original work using Second Life that clearly demonstrates high quality, execution, function, aesthetics and technical sophistication” and that it “has the capacity for inspiring and influencing future development, knowledge, creativity, and collaboration both inside and outside of Second Life.”

Ten thousand US dollars goes to the winner and entries aren’t restricted to any particular country. The prize will actually be paid in Linden Dollars, which has its pros and cons.

After some challenging weeks for Linden Lab PR-wise, this announcement may garner some cynicism but it’s also an opportunity for Australian content creators to showcase their work. If you’re creativity in Second Life is having a real-world impact, then think about applying – you have until the 15th January 2009.

    This price is only a pittyfull attemp to try to take the attention away from the biggest protests in second Life ever. How strange they were not covered on this news website?
    LL has announced a 67% monthly price over night for a product they started selling a half year ago. Thousends of people are now pushed into paying 67% more per month and had it with Linden Lab. So basically Linden Lab took a few million and now wants to give out one 10.000 us$ reward. If it was not so sad, I would laugh about it.
