All we need from you is your email address. We’re teaming up with Betavine to help spread the word about mobile web widgets to the web design and development community.

By signing up below, you’re giving Betavine (who are cool – I promise) permission to say hello and let you know about exciting news (like the £20,000 prize they’re giving away to the person who builds the best mobile web widget). You can, of course, unsubscribe at any time, with no questions asked.

I’ll pick one winner on Wednesday, Feb 25th Monday, March 30th.

Only two rules. You need to …

1. Live in one of these five countries: USA, UK, Italy, Germany, Spain
2. Be a web designer or developer

If you can’t see the form above, please use this version.

  1. So did anyone find out who won? I haven’t seen anything on this on thinkvitamin.com

  2. Cool, I’ll have some of that. Fingers crossed!

  3. Hey Ryan,

    When’s FOWA Australia? I could help you out if you bring it to Perth 😉


  4. Great prize, looking forward to the draw!

  5. Not a designer or developer, but this is a cool contest!

  6. I have no chance of going to the events but would love to win the rest, can I enter for part of it? hehe.

  7. The winner is announced on my birthday so im hoping thats a good omen, would love to go to FOWD in London 🙂

  8. Hey Ryan, FOWA is in Dublin, how come us Irish can’t apply!

  9. Have added my name too – being UK based was easy 😉


  10. Thanks very much hope I win, would love to go to FOWA in Dublin

  11. Irish people can’t enter for the FOWA Dublin? Awww.

  12. @Mark Henderson. It was a discovery of @keirwhitaker. Basically, you go into Google Docs > New > Form. The answers are all stored in a Google Doc. It’s free and it’s brilliant!

  14. The prizes rocks, true. Too bad you’ve set the area restriction…

  15. Ryan, how/why have you made use of a Google Docs form? I’ve never seen that before, what’s the end product like for you guys? Your own spreadsheet of entrants instead of a database?

    Could be a tutorial in there…

    See you at FOWA London..


  16. @David Hund – I love that: “Professional asskicker” 🙂 I’m so sorry about the lack of countries!

  17. Amazing contest Ryan!

    This idea should bring good business to the right person.

    Good luck everyone.

  18. guys, I feel the chills just thinking about the amazing prize you are giving away

  19. Hey Ryan,

    I live in Holland (The Netherlands)…

    It’s just a tiny hop to the UK or Germany!
    I’ll speak German, Spanish or English (American is a bit of a stretch 🙂 ).

    Plus I kick serious ass (at many of your webdev categories too!)

    How can they not invite me?!


    Anyway, sounds like a cool deal. Kudos!

    David Hund – professional asskicker

  20. Lack of other countries (Poland, please!) hurts. Good luck anyway!

  21. @Caroline – that’s fine 🙂

    Re: No Canada – sorry guys. The folks at Betavine are particularily interested in the five countries we’ve listed. I’m so sorry!

  22. This is a great chance for us to get some promotion! Thanks for having this! See everyone at FOWA Miami!

  23. Great idea – pity we aren’t live yet – can you hold until the summer?!

  24. Can I enter, I am from the UK, but temporarily in Canada. Still have UK home address!


  25. No Canada? Oversight, or do you hate us?

  26. Cool contest, Ryan, not a developer or a designer but if I was, I would jump in for sure.

  27. Nice offer – thanks! Btw you have Flash twice on the list.

  28. Snub the Canadians, ‘eh?

  29. Thanks guys!

    @Aaron Irizarry – I’ve always wanted to bring FOWA/FOWD to LA, but we can’t afford to right now. Maybe in 2010?

  30. Done and done, good luck to me!!

  31. Wow! Great contest.
    Keep putting on great events!

    Any chance any of your events will make it to the west coast? Los Angeles or San Diego? 🙂

  33. Damn! I live in South Africa. It is a bit… far!

  34. Weak beans! No Canada!
    Either way, those are some very sweet prizes.

  35. Awesome! Some very nice prizes.
