Los concursos que se han llevado a cabo son para los programas de Stardock. WinMedia no es parte de Stardock, por consecuente no es una aplicacion valida en estos concursos.
Si Microsoft se uniera a los auspiciadores y contribuyera con la donacion de premios entonces WinMedia seria parte de los concursos.

Me thinks maybe the shorter "SKINNING CONTEST" so's as not to confuse with the previous contest(s) when browsing? Just a thought. {thought I found a entry until memory kicked in and I looked at the date}
