Farnell, an Avnet Company and global distributor of electronic components, products and solutions, had celebrated its 10-year manufacturing and distribution partnership with Raspberry Pi Ltd on 14 March 2022. On this occasion we have launched a competition to find the longest serving Raspberry Pi application currently in use.
Please refer the original link to know more about the competition. Now there are only six days remaining for engineers, hobbyists, makers, educators and students to enter Farnell’s competition. Time is running out to secure a chance to win one of 10 major prize packages.
“We have received some fantastic entries so far, but our search isn’t over. As part of our 10-year partnership celebration with Raspberry Pi Ltd, we would love to uncover as many long serving applications as we can, and this is the last chance,” said Romain Soreau, Head of Single Board Computing, Farnell.
A compelling selection of long-serving applications have been entered into the competition, including a motorway congestion tracker featuring an eight-year-old Raspberry Pi 1 Model B through to an automatic lawn watering and pond monitoring application using a six-year-old Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+.
The 10 prize packages Farnell will give away each include 10x Raspberry Pi Picos and a Pi NoIR 8MP Camera. To enter the competition, participants must submit their entry via the element14 Community with a brief description about the application, how long it’s been working and current photographic evidence of their Raspberry Pi in action.
Entries can be submitted into this global competition until midnight BST Saturday, April 30. The 10 prize packages will be awarded to the most successful applications in May 2022. The prizes can be claimed by the winners or be donated to a local school, coding club or college in the winner’s country of residence. Terms & Conditions apply, and the judge’s decision is final.
Farnell has been the longest serving strategic business partner Raspberry Pi Ltd and has helped Raspberry Pi become a global phenomenon, with tens of millions of units sold around the world. Those who wish to enter the competition should visit the element14 Community as soon as possible.
