Arrow FPGA contest

The prizes are not that great, but looks like you can get a nice free FPGA development board by just providing an interesting project description. It says "European Contest", so I don't know if you can register if you live outside Europe, but there are no rules written on the page which restricts it.
So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

One could get these dev boards for free at embedded world 2018 and 2019 ...
Looks like one of the usual promotions, and Arrow hoping to harvest some application ideas from the entries. A couple of years ago I found my application idea (submitted to get a dev board for free) appearing in an article  published in one of these electronics marketing magazines. Never mind, I also won a second (or third, don't remember) prize for my idea (and its prototype stage realisation).

Odds to win a real prize in these competitions aren't too bad if you submit a half decent prototype realisation of your idea, apparently not many people do so, many appear to just collect the board.
