I like entering software contests, but I have trouble finding them. I think there should be a forums here at DBW for for all the widget contests going on in the world. If there's a widget contest at another website, someone could post it in this forum so everyone here would know about it.

That would be interesting, seeing more contests. Helps promote widgets and widget-developing at the same time, not to mention getting people to put their full in worthy widgets. Any chance this site will have more contests of its own?

We're currently working on a revision to iCompositions that is taking up all of our (or at least my) free time. Once it's done, I'm sure we'll see a few more contests soon.

now that iC3 is out (and it looks great, btw), how about some contests for the best widget? Maybe different categories, like most useful, best designed, most unique, most fun, etc. Maybe even a giveaway drawn randomly. This way people will have more of an incentive to submit widgets here. Let's try to have more widgets here than on apple.com!
