The nominated sites
Overall, most of the nominated sites are blogs, some affiliate sites, and a few of web apps and forums. I know about 1/4 of the listed sites/blogs.
There were some listing errors but fixed after I notified the site crew. But today I spotted another site listing error..
The organizers of The Malaysian Dotcom Youth Search are YouthMalaysia.com, MIRC Incubator, and Nuffnang.com. The contest is established in conjunction with Youth`08.
My two cents
I have submitted my application of The Malaysian Dotcom Youth Search too (yes, I am under 30 :P).
I had hard time to fill up the application form, which has very strict rules on number of words used: description of site note more than 3 words, answer “how is your site considered innovative?” in 15 words.
Trust me, I spent half an hour to edit the words!
If you have a website, forum, blog, or school/college website project, you should submit yours too. Who knows, you might be the winner? The submission is free, anyway. Join now!
