ROS Documentation Contest
DescriptionWhile often neglected, documentation helps makes your project usable, so here is a contest for making great documentation!
Have you seen this page? Now there is a contest to fix it!
We have prizes of official ROS Diamondback and I Heart Robotics T-Shirts available for the best new documentation. Tell us how your code works and you could win both shirts!

Prizes will be awarded on a rolling basis until supplies are exhausted. The first winners will be announced within the next 30 days, subsequent winners will be announced at least once every 30 days until the end of the contest.
Contributors from most countries are eligible where ever legally and financially possible. You can quickly check if you can receive shipments via US Postal Service Flat Rate Priority Mail International http://www.usps.com/international/serviceupdates.htm or can email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org .
- Package documentation
- Topics / Services
- API documentation
Since this contest is designed to motivate contributors to document their code, only documentation with significant improvements after March 27th will be considered. For equally well-documented projects, priority will be given to which ever is more useful.
Each winner will receive both shirts mailed to them using Priority Mail or Priority Mail International. Shipments within the United States usually take 3 days. International shipments in the past have been delivered to Europe in less than a month, perhaps you might be lucky.
