Windows 8 app contest: first wave of winners announced

The closing date for our Windows 8 App Generator competition (opens in new tab) is rapidly approaching - and although the main prizes are still to play for, we've already given out 29 prizes to designers just for entering!

We're pleased to announce to the winners of both of these draws below.
