Elance has just launched a way for you to get paid to play with Windows Azure.  You will need to have an Elance account to participate.  You can sign up for a free account here.

There are two ways to get paid by Elance for creating a Windows Azure based application:

  • Earn $50 from Elance for each accepted application you build on Windows Azure and submit through Elance by December 31, 2009.  Any type of Windows Azure based application from simple samples to extremely complex solutions will qualify.
  • Win up to $10,000 from Elance for the top application and $1,000 each for the top five runner-up applications.
