Apply for Sun Microsystems / Recruit’s Mash-up award in October

Since today Japan-based web companies are welcome to send in applications for the 4th Mash-up awards jointly organized by Sun Microsystems Japan and Recruit.

The first prize is 10 million Yen (approximately $10,000).
Applications will be accepted until September 16th, while the awards show will be conducted on October 19th.
Last year, Yuki Naotori from 7ns won the SUN/RECRUIT award with his Google Maps mash up called ONGMAP (thankfully available in English).
Disclaimer:
Asiajin’s Akky Akimoto will be one of the judges for the event.

PS
Is it me or are industry events like this pretty rare in Japan? I know Yahoo! Japan organized a Web API contest last year (in which Akky also served as a judge), which was never repeated.
