AIRDerby – Now this is a prize…

Adobe Integrated Runtime (formerly Apollo)I personally never really get involved with online competitions. It’s not because I don’t fancy my chances. It’s more due to the fact that living in the UK most (if not all) competitions run by companies like Adobe are only available to residents of the US and Canada.

However, and this really is a biggy, to build up to the launch of Adobe Integrated Runtime (formerly Apollo), Adobe have really pushed out the boat in the competition stakes. Not only is this competition open to everyone on the planet (and possibly the Moon) but more importantly it’s the prize that is at stake – and this is the real doozie.
