yeah this comp just got serious :0 Thanks Jordan!! Free widget theme sounds like a great idea. Contestants win (possibly), customers win with free stuff, and everybody wins with a traffic boost if we collectively promote the freebies a little bit. In fact, if we do this idea, I say we set aside a little bit of money to buy an ad somewhere for the freebies. We could just link to the forum and provide a download link, or maybe all the entries could be free file of the month :D

About the widget.
Cool to restrict it with something related with sound. It has not to be a player obligatory, of course. A flash widget can be placed inside a template (both from AD or TF), and also can be exported as an standalone app (even without air), so could be nice thinking in further spread of the freebie.

I think we can not restrict about width*height, so participants can decide the size, always thinking that it must be a small component. Maybe something wide as a toolbar, or something square as a desktop widget. And trying to “promote” the design & concept idea of the contest.

Jordan addition will make this pretty interesting, i guess someone who has left the AD ship will return for a while… ;) – My call for not allow AD authors with TF files published… eh… wait.. arg, i’ve a stupid TF file published. I take back what I said. ;)

More ideas?

imho, this would be too much restricting.
one could have a cool idea for a widget which doens’t involve sound

with LGLab contribution:
(300+150+75+50+50)*2 = 1.250

How about mobile app developed with AIR , clearly you guys can’t ignore all the buzz recently.

Making Twitter, G+, Facebook or Envato API app, export to multiple platform and blow everyone away :-)

I think we can make a small competition within our community like this:

Difference only in winner prize, they have 200k hard cold cash, we have ~2k :D
