Briefly (1-2 paragraphs at most) describe the "coolest" or most interesting way in which you have used PDF. We're interested in the use of forms, interactivity, multimedia and functionality. Basically, if you think it's cool and innovative, chances are, we will too. (Finalists may be asked to supply sample files for posting on Planet PDF at the close of the competition.)
Entries missing ANY of the requested information will not be entered in the weekly drawings. Submissions will be collected for four weeks, then winners will be selected by our panel of independent expert judges before being named and notified by Planet PDF. Only one entry per person, please. Duplicates will be eliminated.
