This might be of interest to some of you. There is a contest held by NVIDIA, the Graphics Card leader, to experience the power of their GPUs by way of using NVIDIA CUDA™ Technology. CUDA is the world’s only C language environment that provides access to processing power of NVIDIA GPUs. This enables developers to utilize NVIDIA GPUs to solve the most complex computation-intensive challenges such as oil and gas exploration, financial risk management, product design, medical imaging, and scientific research.

The CUDA Contest welcomes all types of mainstream stand alone applications or plug-ins, running in Windows, Linux or MacOS environments, but is looking to reward innovative, useful apps that make the best use of the GPU processing power. Scientific applications are excluded. I thought this could be of interest to the CRYPTOcrats if they would like to test/verify their algorithms or even do cryptanalysis.

Find below the flyer of this competition. You can contact NVIDIA directly or use the comments section if you need more information.
