Win an iPad 2 in London on Launch Day just for Dressing Up

We have just received an email from Orange UK announcing their iPad pricing and Friday's launch details (£199 for iPad 2 plus £25 per month over a 24 month contract).

But there was also information about the quite special competition Orange will be running at their London Great Marlborough Street branch. If you are in the queue dressed up as your favourite app you could win one of ten 64GB 3G + WiFi iPad 2s!

Orange customers and those signed up for notifications have received the email but we can't find confirmation of the details anywhere else, so here is a quote from the message:

To be in with a chance of winning you need to queue outside the shop dressed as your favourite iPad app between 4pm and 4.30pm. So switch your dress down Friday for a dress up Friday and make like an Angry Bird or Fruit Ninja down to the shop – the 10 judged to be wearing the best costumes will win an iPad 2.

We think this is a fun way to run a competition and not a bad investment of embarrassment for a top-of-the-range iPad 2.

But what we really want to know is what app would you go dressed as? And if anyone in the UK is planning on going down to try and win one please let us know.

Competition: Win a Nomad Brush

Image provided by and Copyright of NomadBrush LLCIf you read our review and watched our video aboout the Nomad Brush you will know how amazing we thought it was (if you haven't you might want to go and do that now). So how would like to win one of your very own? Here's your chance...

To celebrate the recently announced International shipping option, iPad Creative readers have been given a chance to win one of two Nomad Brushes by its inventor, Don Lee.

Here are the two ways you can enter:

1 - Via Facebook: 'Like' both Nomad Brush and iPad Creative, then leave your name as it appears on Facebook in the comments and a valid email address in the 'Author Email' box (will not be made public). This is so that we can validate your entry.

2 - Via Twitter: Follow both @NomadBrush and @iPadCreative first (if you already follow us then you can skip this bit) and tweet this message exactly as it appears below:

Win a #NomadBrush stylus with @NomadBrush and @iPadCreative - details here: http://bit.ly/gyrVpw  

Then add a comment below with your Twitter name and paste in the URL of your tweet (we ask you to do this because Twitter search sucks and we don't want to miss your entry). Be sure to provide an email address in the 'Author Email' box (will not be made public) when you comment.

You must ensure that your tweets are not protected, or we will be unable to verify your entry.

Double your chances

To double your chances of winning you may enter via both Facebook and Twitter if you wish, but please only make one entry per social network, we will be looking for duplicate entries per network and these will be disqualified.

You may only win one Nomad Brush stylus in this competition, so in the highly unlikely event that you are chosen randomly from both Facebook and Twitter we will re-run the selection process for one of them.

Closing Date

The competition closes at 1900 GMT on Monday 28th February 2011, after which time we will randomly select one winner from Facebook and one winner from Twitter. We will contact you via email if you are a winner. Thank you for participating!

Get Creative With Groovemaker On Your iPhone To Win An iPad

 If, like us, you have been playing around with IK Multimedia’s Groovemaker on the iPhone for a while, you will know how much fun it can be pretending to be a supersonic DJ doing all the cool funky stuff they do (we are not cool or funky so we won’t try and say the things they do). Now that the Groovemaker app is on the iPad, with an extended interface enabling you to access more features at once, we think it is even better, but we will be looking at that in another post in the near future.

If you haven’t got your iPad yet though, IK Multimedia are giving you the chance to show off your groove creation skills to the world, and possibly win an iPad in the process. Basically, you create a video of your amazing Groovemaker creation in action (including yourself in the video if you want to), upload it to YouTube with the required tags and other info, then promote it like crazy however you want to on the social networking sites that we all know and end up having to use every day.

It looks like you have to create your unique composition on an iPhone or iPod Touch, as (we are guessing) if you record it on the iPad you are just being greedy because you have one already, but you can use the free versions so it won’t cost you anything. You have until 30th June 2010 to get your video viewed as many times as possible to stand a chance of winning.

We think it is a great way to promote music creation amongst users, combined with a healthy dose of competition (and a good dollop of marketing on the side). If it is your thing anyway, why not give it a shot? If you do enter a song, let us know in the comments and we will drop by and check it out.
