So you were thinking about entering the Gadget contest, but then you didn't get around to it? Well lucky you, you get another chance. Here's what I heard today: the deadline has been extended a month. You have to get your gadget into the Gallery to enter, and it's a process with a few steps to it:

Process to Enter Competition


Developers will need to perform the following actions:


1.       Post their Gadget on the Windows Live Gallery (approval process can take a few days)

2.       Return to the Gadget Vs. Gadget site and select ‘Enter Contest’ tab and use their Live ID to login

3.       Complete the entry form to submit their Windows Vista gadget for review


Winners will be announced September 4, 2007.

Same cool prizes, same great exposure, so go for it! http://www.microsoft.com/canada/msdn/gadgetvsgadget/default.aspx . Remember, Canadians only!

Hi Kate,

It appears that the winners will not be announced. I did enter this competition but was very disappointed that Microsoft Canada seems to have decided not to publish the results! When I sent an e-mail to the MSDN Team they said that the winners had been notified on Sept 4th. I'm sure that everyone that put the time in to build a sidebar gadget would like to see the winning gadgets. It seems very surprising that MSDN Canada wants to keep it a secret.
