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.

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.

A good start for the development of your project in any case. Although there are many who wish, there is always a chance. I know a few people who have succeeded this way. It’s not working out for me yet.

Just an FYI -- I tried entering (back in early July) and got an email back that very nicely said they couldn't ship to the US...
