Silverlight 2 (beta2) Contest Extended – More Cash Prizes for Winners 18

As you know, I’m running a writing contest for Silverlight 2 developers on my blog recently. I got one more sponsor for that contest. Ivan Dragoev, Product Manager of SilverlightShow mailed that he is very interested in sponsoring this contest and he will be given away $300 (USD) for the winners! Cool, isn’t it?

I will be extending the contest for two more weeks so that you don’t miss those cool prizes. Just start writing the great article about Silverlight and you could be the winners!  (There are some changes in rules. Please read below for more information.)

    Hi Michael,

    Great initiative with this competition, been following the articles and they’re all really good and informative. I’m scrambling like crazy at the moment to get my article finished and submitted. :)

    And that’s where I have question, the submissions are to be in before the 25th July, but then the winners are to be announced the 27th July(Friday). As far as I can tell the 27th isn’t a Friday.
    I’m assuming that the dates are correct and the day is wrong but I just wanted to check.
