A couple days ago, even though not many people have blogged about it, AOL and TopCoder Inc. announced the AOL Video Mashup Competition. Developers are expected to use AOL Video Search APIs to create and “mash up” AOL’s video search technology into their own websites.
Developers are expected to design a UI or write up a website or paper explaining the concept behind the mashup idea while using the AOL Video Search APIs. The deadline for the mashup contest is on January 5, 2007. The finalists would be selected by January 22, 2007. Winners will be announced on February 8, 2007 and the winner would receive $12,000.
The contest details are [here].
