Patchou has announced his 2009 Messenger Plus! Live contest with no less than 1,000 prize packages up for grabs. The contest does not require any form of entry, only for users to simply click on an image made up from millions of pixels, selecting the winning pixels that contain prizes. The contest is similar to that of the 6th anniversary contest two years ago.
Beginning at Sunday July 12 at 00:01 (GMT -5) the contest will open to everybody. Anyone with Messenger Plus! Live (4.82.368) installed can play the contest. Users will see a gold Messenger Plus! Live logo on the top of their Windows Live Messenger contact list that looks like this: . Once you click on the icon, users will be prompted with a board game window where they can simply click and reveal what is behind each pixel.
Each contestant is eligible to win up to 10 prize packages each of their own choice, selected from Evolution Store with the users choice of figures and high-end collectibles. Each prize package has a randomly assigned value between $20 to $1,500, giving the users a choice of what they want.
Messenger Plus! Live is an add-on for Windows Live Messenger, allowing users to customize their messenger experience from skinnable chat windows and contact list, tabbed conversations, custom colour formatting in messages, custom scripts, boss protection lock, customized events and many more.
The contest does require Windows Live Messenger and Messenger Plus! Live to be installed in order to enter the competition.
Patchou has put together a video to kick start the competition!
