Birmingham's Apple Centre of Excellence is hosting a podcasting and gaming event on May 10, with a copy of Final Cut Studio up for grabs.

The Apple accredited trainers there are running a competition to find the best two or three-minute audio or video podcast.

Podcast authors simply need to send their transmission to the New Technology Institute, 15 Bartholomew Row, Birmingham, B5 5JU, by April 30. The winner will be chosen in early May.

It's the first Authorised Apple Training Centre (AATC) in the Midlands, which opened its doors in January 2006. It offers the latest Apple equipment and offers a host of Mac-related courses, with a particular focus on video.
