Win a Silverlight Skateboard – Oz Remix Silverlight Video Clip Contest


skateboard_closeup Why pay for a Remix 08 ticket when you can win one? And a Silverlight skateboard while you’re at it!


Creating Silverlight™ animations with Expression Blend is quick and easy and to prove it we want you to have a go in the lead-up to Remix 08!


So, we are running a Oz Remix Silverlight Video Clip Contest.


What do I have to do?


All you have to do is use Silverlight to create a “video music clip” for the song we supply (“Step Back” by Sydney/NY musician Matt Broadfoot). The entries judged to be the best win prizes!


More Detail


We provide a song clip from the Matt Broadfoot song, “Step Back”. You create a Silverlight application that plays the song and uses Silverlight animation to create a “video music clip” to go with the song clip. You load your video music clip application up onto Silverlight Streaming then sit back and wait for the accolades!


Here’s a (very) simple example: http://blogs.msdn.com/shanemo/pages/remix-silverlight-video-clip-competition-sample.aspx

  • A Silverlight skateboard!!!



  • A ticket to Remix 08 Australia Event in either Melbourne or Sydney


Second prize:




  • A generation 1 Microsoft Zune® Scotty had lying around – which will be lovely once upgraded to the latest software 🙂 (*Note: Some of the online features may not operate in Australia.)

    Happy to give special mention to the best overseas entries – just can’t judge them coz, well, what if first 3 places are not Aussies. That would be
