If you're a Web developer or designer, here's a great opportunity to land some great prizes

At Vator, we're always seeking to partner with great companies to provide unique opportunities to our members. If you or someone you know is a Web developer or designer, here's a new competition that's worth checking out or sharing.

Vator has partnered with Microsoft WebsiteSpark to launch the WebsiteSpark Web developer and designer Competition to find leading Web developers/designers and development teams.

WebsiteSpark is a program that was launched in September. A sister program to BizSpark, WebsiteSpark is for independent Web developers and designers, or small companies with fewer than 10 employees who do contract work and build client’s Web sites/Web apps, like an outsourced dev shop.  WebsiteSpark provides these Web Pros with extremely low cost MS development tools, and new business leads  – customers who need work done, who are passed to WebsiteSpark Web Pros.

WebsiteSpark is a three-year program with a simple $100 program fee payable upon program exit.

The winner of the WebsiteSpark Web designer competition will receive two free tickets to Vator Splash, a featured video (see VatorProductions), and a $5000 development design contract.

These prizes alone should be compelling enough to at least give the competition a shot. 

But that's not all. Additionally, the winner will receive:

- Software from Microsoft WebsiteSpark, including three Web site licenses for:

  • Visual Studio Professional
  • Expression Studio 3 (1 user) and Expression Web 3 (up to 2 users)
  • Windows Web Server 2008 R2
  • SQL Server 2008 Web Edition

- Premium access to Microsoft’s new business leads pipeline (https://agency.buildabetterwebsite.com)

- One year of free Windows Web Server hosting from WebsiteSpark Hosting Partner

- Case study done of your business, co-produced with Microsoft

- Featured Web Pro interview in monthly WebsiteSpark Newsletter

- Consultation with Microsoft marketing professional to talk about future business strategy

- Xbox 360 Elite or Zune HD

Altogether, the prizes amount to well over $10,000. What are you waiting for? 

Join the competition or tell someone who might find it worthwhile.
