Congratulations to Our Widget Developers!

The eBay Widget Build-Off Contest was a blast for us to host, and we are very encouraged by the enthusiasm and creativity the developer community has shown us. We want to thank all the developers who have entered their widgets for your passion and courage to show us just how cool eBay widgets can get. In our mind, you are all winners. But the average scores separated the masters from the experts by a sliver. So we want to take this opportunity to share with the rest of our developer community and eBay community whom we’ve chosen as masters of eBay widget development.  Details on the winner widgets and their developers are coming soon.

In no particular order:

Winner: Ztail.com’s gallery + related keywords selection widget

Winner: Ty Kroll's widget for disappearing eBay listings as they end

Winner: Mark Johnson's (Portland Studios) widget with 3D animated flip-the-widget for listing details design

Winner: Thai Huynh's new and improved eBay To Go

Winner: Ben Longoria's shoe rack widget for all the shoe fanatics out there

(Note: winners are subject to signing all necessary paperwork)

Congratulations again to all the winners! And thank you all again for participating in this quick contest and all your hard work :o).  You guys are awesome, and eBay Partner Network will be proud to share the winner widgets with the rest of our affiliate community.
