Seems like this hasn't been mentioned here yet and hopefully it isn't breaking the forum rules.
Some of you may already know this, but there's a US-only camera hack contest
hosted by Make that's ending very soon (May 13th, 11:59pm Pacific Time). The three prizes are Nikon (yeah, the irony) 1 V3 camera kits. Judging criteria is "originality, creative use of technology and the quality of the explanation to allow reproduction of the process".
It would be nice to see someone from this forum walk away with one of the prizes; as an aussie I can't enter anyway so I have no problem with extra competition.
