               offers 400 Euro for the best example of

                           what Ada can do


  Ada-Belgium announces a competition open to all. We'd like to see
 examples of what Ada can do. We'll award a prize of 400 Euro to the
                    entry we judge to be the best.

   We're looking for an interesting idea and good Ada. The judges'
   decision will be based on originality, utility, quality, style,
        reusability, readability and good use of Ada features.

 You can enter existing work or new material written for the contest.
  We will consider all types of projects: applications, libraries or
   even incomplete works. If you are building on top of an existing
  library or other piece of code then your work should be indicated
 clearly and should predominantly be in Ada; the library you use need
                               not be.
The judges will consider the code itself; you should indicate the most
interesting parts of your source - about 1K lines - for the judges to
examine. If you are targetting a reasonably common computer and using
   generally available tools, then you are welcome to supply build
   instructions so the judges can try to execute your code. If your
 target is portable you may be able to demonstrate the code running.

Judging will take place in January and February. To help plan the work
of the judges we'd like you to register your interest in advance. The
 competition is open to everyone. Entries must be submitted in one of
English, French, Dutch or German. Please register as soon as possible
                 using the contact information below.

Your entry should reach us by the end of the seventh of January, 2002.
We would like to publish the best entries. Please make clear when you
submit the entry whether it may be published and under what terms. By
 default the GNU Public Licence will be assumed if none is mentioned.

 The judges will be members of or appointed by the Ada-Belgium board.
    The judges decisions are final. The judges will not enter into
              correspondence regarding their decisions.

      Ada-Belgium reserves the right to award additional prizes.
