Opera is running a Widget competition with nice prices, including a MacBook Pro as the grand price. They are giving away weekly prices from ThinkGeek ('http://www.thinkgeek.com/') and a Nokia 770 as the monthly prize.

If you know how to create web pages and a little bit about web technologies, you can create your own Opera Widget, upload it to Opera's Widgets Web Page ('http://widgets.opera.com/') and you are in the competition. Widgets on Opera's site are available to all Opera 9 ('http://www.opera.com/download/') users.

People are now creating Opera Widgets ranging from the funny and artistic via news readers to educational applications. Most Widgets are focused on a single task, some use AJAX and many have a cool design. Widgets are running on the users desktop, you don't need your own web server to make or distribute them.

Opera have documentation on how to make Widgets ('http://my.opera.com/community/dev/widgets/') available, and in their Widgets forum ('http://my.opera.com/community/forums/forum.dml?id=1296') you can discuss with other Widget developers.
