google code jam

Google is going big in India and I like their idea of finding good coders...
Google Code jam organized by Topcoder is really awesome. We participated in the qualification round 2 days back (27th) and all of us got through. The next competetion is the challenge phase and only 50 people will get through it out of 500 . The prizes are also awesome...have a look


Competitor(s) Prize
1st place finisher* - Tournament Champion Rs. 3,00,000
2nd place finisher* in the Championship Round Rs. 2,00,000
3rd place finisher* in the Championship Round Rs. 1,25,000
4th place finisher* in the Championship Round Rs. 75,000
5th place finisher* in the Championship Round Rs. 50,000
6th - 10th place finishers* in the Championship Round Rs. 35,000 each
11th - 20th place finishers* in the Championship Round Rs. 25,000 each
21st - 30th place finishers* in the Championship Round Rs. 20,000 each
31st - 40th place finishers* in the Championship Round Rs. 15,000 each
41st - 50th place finishers* in the Championship Round Rs. 7,500 each

well...its really awesome...even 50th person is getting 7500 which is equal to the first prize in most of the programming contests...
