Well, I'm willing to offer 200 for the sub catogory rts, as stated in my own contest.
Even though I am figuring out how to create one of my own~

I'm open to suggestions, if there's other contributor for prizes I'm all for it. We should launch it quickly then...I'll make the artwork, rules etc within a week or so. If we can come up with a special theme/angle this year, the better. I'll need help to broadcast on social networks. Shoot your ideas!
Yes of course - we should start a contest in 2014!!! I will sponsor some prizes (as for the UCC2013). For example 3 Simon Says DIY kits...

another idea as prizes: limited euzebox cases engraved with the euzebox logo in the top ;)
also, i have some ic's i don't need at all, so i can put that in the prizepot as well
4x cd4067be ic's
2x lm386 (including ic feet) ic's
1x atmega644P dip (including ic feet) ic (replacement if you broke your uzebox) <<you'll need to flash the euzebox bootloader on it for it to work!

i also got one raspberry pi model b including psu and a case from shortcrust (look it up ;) to offer in the prizepot
plus 8x male to female/male header ententions.
and 5x breadboards with 700 contacts each to expiriment on

Well - if Uze is putting down $400 for the overall, Schepers puts in $200 for a RTS sub category then I will put down $200 for a Novice/Junior category.

I may offer do up some Uzebox hardware also. I am working on two things at the moment. One of them should be on instructables in a week or two.
