I'm proud to annouce the Belgian availability of the first European Silverlight Challenge, organised by Ineta Europe. In Belgium, Visug, the Belgian Visual Studio User Group, is the usergroup that organises this challenge.

Probably, you haven't heard of this competition yet. Well then, let me explain what you have to do in order to participate, and, maybe more importantly, what great prices are to be won!

The goal is to get more people developing Silverlight applications. As a participant, you can create whatever application you wish in Silverlight (may be in combination with another technology, for example ASP.NET/ASP.NET AJAX). You can upload your creation to our Belgian competition website, http://belgium.silverlightchallenge.eu. Do not upload it to the general website (www.silverlightchallenge.eu). The creations that reach us before January 31st 2008, will take part in the competition. A jury will then decide on 4 winners between the Belgian creations. The best creation will be entered in the European contest afterwards, where a jury will select the best participation over all countries.
