Reminder: Microsoft now accepting #RemixProject entries for Surface Music Cover

Microsoft began accepting entries for its #RemixProject contest this week, with winners receiving a limited edition Surface Music Cover, which it announced Monday alongside the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2.

Users can submit contest entries by tweeting a Vine video with the hashtag #RemixProject. Contestants must also be following the @Surface Twitter account for entries to be valid; that account will then contact winners through a direct message after Oct. 28.

Ironically, Microsoft's Windows Phone operating system doesn't have an official Vine app, though one was announced in July. No date exists for the app's release, though it's unlikely to occur before the entries are no longer accepted at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Oct. 24. A third-party Vine app, 6sec, is available for Windows Phone 8 devices, however.

The contest is only open to U.S. residents who are at least 13 years old. Microsoft will select 500 winners based on a criteria that considers originality, quality and the fit to the contest's theme. Submissions must be original work in English; the full contest rules can be found here.

This needs to not be limited edition.

I agree, sorta. I think the best way for these covers/blades to work is if they come with a specific piece of software. Some app that they directly control, like you could have one for a photo editing app where most if not all of the controls are on the cover and not in the app UI. Same with video editing and on and on, but for it to really work the two have to be tied together IMO.

I'd imagine that by limited edition the cover will come in a different colour or something, but will still have general availability in the bog standard edition.

Shame is, it's impossible for Windows Phone users to participate: unless you pay for 6sec by Rudy Huyn (which I did weeks ago, mind you), you cannot make the vine video for the contest.
