Over at NoteTalkers they’re running a contest for your best MindManager mindmaps within a few categories. From their post:
Note Talkers, Mindjet, and our affiliated Sponsors value innovation. That´s why we´re looking to you, to show us your creative talents! Enter our Note Talker´s MindManager Map Contest and you could walk away with some of the best tools for supporting and increasing your innovative drive. Here´s how it works:
We´re inviting readers to design and submit up to three MindManager map entries (one per category per person, please) by email to firstname.lastname@example.org"?¦

- A Screencast** demonstrating MindManager
And they’re offering some pretty sweet prizes:
A grand prize package worth over $1,100 will be awarded to the winner of each of the three categories below, plus a fourth category called "Judge´s Choice." All maps entered for the three categories are eligible for the Judge´s Choice category:

‘Course the catch is that you’ve got to use MindManager to make your maps. But if you don’t have it, you can get a Windows trial version here. Mac users, there’s currently a beta test that you can sign up for here (no guarantee that’ll you’ll be selected, but it’s worth trying).
