The Return Of The 5k Award

Finally the 5k Award is back. This year it will be hosted by SIGGRAPH 2004. What a great chance to demonstrate to the international nerd society the power of Flash. Build something amazing in 5120 bytes? What other tool is out there that could compete with Flash in this aspect? So even if the exact submission dates are not yet set I recommend you to start coding now - I'm sure that this year it will be a tough competition...
