Amazon’s Developer Contest

Amazon is launching a web services developer contest:

Build an innovative and entrepreneurial application using Visual Studio 2005 with Amazon Web Services and you can win the grand prize: $5,000!
The first 100 entries will receive an Amazon Web Services t-shirt.

The deadline to submit your software application is December 31, 2005. If you ask me, the prizes are not very high, and the requirement that you’d be using Visual Studio is a bit sad, but a contest is a contest and if I were a student, I’d participate.
