Applications for the 2010 Linden Prize are now open!
Via Blondin Linden on Linden Lab/Second Life Blogs

Last November, we announced and launched the inaugural Linden Prize. You can find the original blog HERE. From that initial post:

"The Linden Prize will award one Second Life Resident or team with $10,000 USD for an innovative inworld project that improves the way people work, learn and communicate in their daily lives outside of the virtual world. The award is intended to align with Linden Lab’s company mission, which is to connect all people to an online world that advances the human condition. Many projects inside of Second Life have already enhanced and changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world, and the company wants to recognize the users’ accomplishments."

I am happy to announce that applications for the 2010 Linden Prize are now open! Applications will be open starting today and will close at 5pm PST on January 15, 2010. Tentatively, a winner will be announced during the first week of May.
We invite all Residents to consider applying for the award. Finalists will be chosen based on the below criteria.
  • Work in Second Life that also achieves tangible, compelling results outside of Second Life.
  • Distinctive, original work using Second Life that clearly demonstrates high quality, execution, function, aesthetics and technical sophistication.
  • Work that has the capacity for inspiring and influencing future development, knowledge, creativity, and collaboration both inside and outside of Second Life.
