Metafox just posted in our forums saying:

Lik-Sang did a write-up about Dream On and the Dream On contest, so the deadline has been extended to March 17, 2004 to accomodate anyone just finding out about the contest who may want to enter, and of course give all of you guys more time and less headache over the holiday season.

Also, Dreamcast-Scene has joined the contest as a sponser, and is offering Hais VGA boxes to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners - as well as their as-of-yet-unreleased GP32 to DC adapter to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.
