It's no secret that we're big fans of automation – and thus, NFC tags – around these parts. Tapping your device on a small tag to automatically adjust settings to accommodate any given situation is not only convenient, but honestly, it's downright awesome.

We've shared this love by giving away some tags in the past, and now we've teamed up with a [somewhat] newcomer to the scene to do it again: AndyTags.

Don't let the fact that AndyTags hasn't been around all that long fool you, though – it's offering up some nice-looking, customized tags in both MiFare and NTAG203 variants, along with keychains and unique Anti-Metal tags that have a special backing, allowing them to work on metal surfaces. That's just cool.

There are two different types of tags: Mifare and NTAG203. To keep the differences simple, here's the gist: if you have a Nexus 4 or Nexus 10, get NTAG203. For all other devices, Mifare works perfectly.

This contest is now over.

The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future. Congratulations!
