Can you use $10,000?
Are you a web designer? Well, show off your stuff and enter your web template designs for a chance at $10k.
Weebly, has opened a new Theme Community, allowing any of its 3.5 million users to submit their own themes for use by other Weebly members. To help launch the new feature, Weebly is holding a contest where it’s giving $10,000 to the top submitted design, as determined by a panel of professional designers.
Users will be able to access the themes both through the site’s editor (which has been revamped a bit to accommodate the new gallery) and from the home page, which you can view even if you aren’t a Weebly member. Themes won’t include attribution in their footers, but the gallery itself will allow designers to build up their own profiles, allowing users to see all of the themes they’ve submitted.
Hurry, submission deadline is April 30th and is open in any country where such contests are valid. Best of success!
