The deadline to enter the “Applications of R in Business” contest is just a week away. To qualify for $20,000 in prizes from Revolution Analytics, your entry must be submitted to by midnight PST on October 31. 

Note that this doesn't have to be your final submission: as long as you've entered a draft version, you can still modify your entry during the public review period, which runs through November 30. 

A prize of $10,000 will be awarded to the entry that best showcases an application of R, as selected by our judges. An additional $5,000 prize is available to the best entry using a feature specific to Revolution R (such as big data, Hadoop or web deployment), plus an additional five $1,000 honorable mention prizes.

Here are some resources to help you get started:

If you've ever written a paper about R, written a report using R, or given a presentation about R and you've thought, “Someone at work will think this is cool”, then you have a shot at winning some great prizes.
