And there are several webinars to help entrants this week

The deadline for rough draft submissions to the MoMinis Studio GameCast contest is July 10th.

The company is accepting submissions in video format that should demonstrate the concept and gameplay of your mobile game and anything else you wish to explain, including what you plan to add to the game for your final entry.

MoMinis recommends using a video capturing software called Camtasia for this purpose. You can see a sample rough draft submission here.
