To officially register a cultivar, it is done through the International Carnivorous Plant Society (ICPS) as described on the page Mike provided a link to. It is also possible to simply name your plant and then start distributing it. That's what I did for all of the flytrap cultivars I grew and named. It was only after the publishing of the Dionaea book by Stewart McPherson, where I co-authored the chapter on Dionaea cultivars, that they all became registered per item #2 on the page Mike linked to.
You don't need to officially register a cultivar for it to be desirable. There are lots of awesome flytrap cultivars in circulation that aren't registered with ICPS.
Also, I'd love to see a photo of the plant and a description of its unique characteristics!
