Post Your Insider News Competition

For the month of June, contribute a news item in the Insider News forum and you'll have a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card. The Code Project is your development resource for programming tips, tricks... and news. Between the Daily Insider, the Mobile Newsletter, and the Web Dev Newletter we've got you covered every day with interesting, relevant news from around the web.

Still, we can make it better. The heart of The Code Project is member contributions. Now you can contribute news, too.

Head over to the Insider News forum and link us up a tech-related news article or blog entry that you think Code Project members should see. Each week we'll award a $25 Amazon card for the most upvoted news item between June 1, 2012 and June 31, 2012.

Each week we'll award a $25 Amazon card for the most upvoted news item between June 1, 2012 and June 31, 2012. (Total of four gift cards - Final judging is at our sole discretion)

We'll also be awarding the top two overall posts with an ebook: ASP.NET MVC 4 in Action by Jeffrey Palermo, Jimmy Bogard, Eric Hexter, Matthew Hinze, and Jeremy Skinner (Final judging is at our sole discretion)

Additional Info

For best results, please use the headline of your linked story as the Subject. Make sure you include a link to the story and a brief description so readers know what the story is about.

Please keep your posts on-topic. We're all programmers here, so stories should cover computing, programming and related topics. General technology and science topics are acceptable if they are related to computing in some way.

That's it!
