The company is hosting a month-long contest in which uDraw GameTablet users can submit winter-themed artwork they created on the device – with a prize pack of THQ video games for Wii worth $500 … plus, the chance to have their art used as the primary background on WorldofuDraw.com.[ Also Read: Russian Fairy Tales Work at Skazki Exhibition ]

Club uDraw is a fun way for uDraw lovers to stay connected to a community of digital artists, to find exclusive videos and to get first-hand information about the latest games for the uDraw GameTablet.
Since its introduction on Nov. 14, the uDraw GameTablet has become one of the most sought-after holiday gifts: Some online retailers like ToysRUs.com and Walmart.com reported selling out of initial shipments, says the company.[ Also Read: Autodesk SketchBook Mobile for Android ]
