Shell Caerndow sends me the news that Indian telecom company Tata Indicom has launched a contest for amateur artists to submit their artwork, photos or music for a chance to win fabulous prizes including iPods, digital cameras and digital picture frames. Between now and March 2009, you can register online and submit your work for a chance to win. I just tried the combined virtual world and web-based submission system, which worked very smoothly for me.
To check out the sim yourself, head to Bombay (click here to teleport.) From there you can head over the gallery and vote for your favorites or participate in another virtual Bollywood star contest.
Nice to see a company launching a new venture in virtual worlds, in this era of economic belt-tightening.
