The inaugural Y Design Awards 2006, launched as part of the London Design Festival, will take submissions until September 6th.

Promoters of the Y Design Awards have chosen Adobe’s Flash technology as the focus of their competition. The contest calls for the most innovative uses of Flash across ten categories, as listed on the contest’s website:

•  Best game design
•  Best interactive site
•  Best application
•  Best online campaign by an agency with less than 5 employees
•  Best online campaign by an agency with more than 5 employees
•  Best not-for-profit campaign
•  Best viral campaign
•  Best video
•  Best technical achievement
•  People’s Choice for best use of Flash

Submitters may enter the competition as many times as they wish in as many categories as they choose. There is no cost to enter the contest. A five-judge panel will select four finalists in each category, with winners to be announced at a special awards event in London on September 25th.

As might be expected, Adobe is sponsoring the event. This is also the tenth anniversary of Flash, which Adobe recognized with a dedicated microsite.

Adobe also has an online contest coming up on its final round of voting. The Flash Awards will recognize the most influential Flash site of the decade.

After the final cuts have been made, voting on the overall winner for The Flash Awards begins on August 30th.

On the Linux side of Flash, hope continues that Flash Player 9 will eventually see the light of day. Mike Melanson has blogged about the progress with that effort:

As in, I can play multiple Flash videos in multiple Firefox browser tabs with nary a crash nor a thread hang. In fact, I’m feeling so confident about the stability that I’m actually composing this entry while a YouTube music video plays in another tab. Nervously, but still.
