Days of wonder are throwing a map competition where you can win 10.000$ if you win. Or as they say themselves:

"To celebrate Days of Wonder's upcoming 10-year anniversary (April 2012), we're holding our biggest contest yet. The $10,000 Ticket to Ride Map Design Contest gives you a chance to become world-famous and put your name on the map!"

Here is the link if someone is interested :-)

It would be really cool if someone from here did win it :-)
