Animation and Mochi Media for evaluation by experts from the two companies, as well as DC Comics. The deadline for submissions is March 27, 2009. Ten finalists will be selected and given two months to develop the Flash game ideas they submitted, with the finished games to be showcased on KidsWB.com in June. All 10 finalists will win a prize with the following distribution pool:
