In conjunction with the publication of The Comedy of Errors, the MLA Committee on the New Variorum Edition of Shakespeare is sponsoring a digital challenge to find the most creative uses of the XML files and schema for the volume. The MLA has released the data under a Creative Commons license and encourages scholars to submit innovative new means of displaying, representing, and exploring this data. The winner will receive $500 and will be recognized at the 2013 MLA convention in Boston. URLs for all entries must be sent by e-mail to nvs@mla.org and must be received no later than Friday, 31 August 2012, at 11:59 p.m. EDT.
