virtue is its own reward!

a less flippant reply:
echoing Antoine's remarks, please specify the following:

- what are the precise technical requirements, sufficient to easily
determine whether a given application/system meets them or not.  the
mention of communities, peers and trust in a few sentences is
insufficient.  i'd expect a detailed description of mandatory
requirements to take a number of pages at least.

- who will be judging the merit / acceptance of submissions?  you? a
committee of experts?  the public vote? etc.

- what are the time constraints of entry: when are initial submissions
due, when are final packaged releases due, when is judging completed,
when are winner(s) announced and how will funds be transferred?

- what are the IP / copyright restrictions / requirements associated
with entry.  is any open source license acceptable.  BSD license?  do
implementers have to give up copyright ownership to accept the prize?

answering these questions will go a long way toward making your
challenge more legitimate / acceptable.
