For reference the rules and challenge description are available below


The Developer Challenge is now CLOSED!

The "KVR Developer Challenge" is for anyone who develops audio plug-ins or applications (i.e. a "developer"). The challenge is to create and release a brand new free audio plug-in or audio application that will benefit the community at large. Creativity is key, it can be as simple or as complex as you want - KVR members will vote on the entries and pick the eventual winner.

You can go wild! Any operating system, any plug-in format, even a stand-alone application - anything that will assist in music making goes! You have just over three months to get it together - submissions will begin on June 15th and end on September 14th. They will all then be hosted for download on the KVR server and released "AT ONCE" for public appraisal and voting on September 15th!

Although anything goes, you should consider how to appeal to the largest market - things such as open source or being multi-platform may garner a bigger audience, and consequently more votes. This is your call though. Whatever you are comfortable with!

The Rules:

  1. Anyone may enter.
  2. Your entry must be an original creation made by you (your team / crew / company / family). Of course you may reuse code / modules / development frameworks, but the actual plugin / application should be a new, original creation, not just an obviously cut-down subset of a program you have already written.
  3. Your entry must not break any copyright rules or license agreements - if your entry uses GPL code then your code should adhere to any restrictions imposed by this, for example.
  4. Your entry may support any operating system.
  5. Your entry may support any plug-in format, or be a stand alone application / utility.
  6. You may use any programming language or development environment (e.g. programming languages such as C++, Delphi, Java, etc. or any of the myriad of development applications such as SynthEdit, SynthMaker, Max/MSP, etc.).
  7. Design and testing must be done in private - public beta testing is not allowed as this may affect the voting process. If you require beta testing resources please see the beta testing section below.
  8. Entries can be submitted any time until September 14th.
  9. You grant KVRaudio.com the permission to distribute your application for download via our server from September 15th, 2006.
  10. KVR Members will vote for their favourite entry between September 15th - 30th, 2006.
  11. The winners will be announced on or around October 1st, 2006.
  12. The prize fund will be delivered to the winner via PayPal within a week of the winner being announced.

The Prize (Money Money Money)

The prize will be cold, hard, cash, made up from donations from the KVR community, primed with a very generous $500 donation from the main organizer behind this event, Tuz! Donations can be made via PayPal and will be held in escrow by KVRaudio until the winner has been selected. The prize will be paid to the eventual winner via PayPal. We'll endeavor to keep the prize fund total updated here.

Voting

Voting will commence on September 15th and end on September 30th, 2006 (Depending on the amount of submissions, the voting period may be extended for another week or so). All KVR members will be eligible to vote although we may instigate some restrictions at the time of voting - maximum joined date, minimum number of posts, etc. - to help prevent voter fraud.

The full results will be posted and the winner announced within a couple of days of the voting ending.

Beta Testing

If you require a private forum for beta testing we can provide you with one here at KVR - make a request in the DC Chat forum and we'll sort one out for you; you will then be able to give people access to the forum for any beta testing duties. If you need some beta tester we may be able to recommend some too. Of course you may already have your own beta testing system in place, or you could just use e-mail.
