As we announced on the July 16th PlurkCast, Eric and I are giving away some incredible prizes in just a week, on the July 23rd Plurkcast. This time, though, it is more of a friendly competition. The contest was inspired by the PlurkCake, which we are sure that you have all seen by now. The challenge?

Make, and then photograph, something that looks like Plurk!

It can look like one of the Plurkimals, or like the timeline, or like anything Plurk. You can cook something, build something, or (as Eric said on the show) creatively arrange your dirty laundry, as long as it looks like Plurk. Take the picture and send it as an attachment to PlurkAlike@plurkiverse.com.

What do you win? The Grand Prize is a completely free blog package, put together by Eric and I for some lucky budding blogger somewhere. The winner will get a free domain name, one year’s free hosting, the WordPress blog itself, some professional design, and the help you need to get your blog going. Plus, you will get one free copy each of two excellent pieces of software by TechSmith:

Camtasia Studio- The premier screen recorder (List price $299)

Snagit – The ultimate screen capture software (List Price $49)

This is truly high end software that you will find to be incredibly use. Just think of the possibilities when combined with the free blog package!

The second prize, which is almost as good as the first, is another set of TechSmith software, both Camtasia and Snagit, a value of (doing the math… :) ) $348!

So get busy. Bake something, build something, arrange the living daylights out of your laundry, just so you make it look like Plurk! Is this going to be fun or what!?!
