WordPress Plugin Competition

Is everyone ready for another WordPress Plugin Competition? I know I am, especially with all the cool stuff going on around WordPress development, this would be a good time to get the ball rolling again. This time I have some help (thanks Ajay), more readers, maybe some more sponsors, more prizes and we hope to see lots of good code, fun projects, meet lots of nice people and help the WordPress community along the way.
Prizes will be determined very soon. If you would like to sponsor a prize, please contact me. Lots of eyes see these competitions and your encouragement goes a long way in helping provide incentives. The plugin competition will begin on the 1st of June and will last till the end of July.

Rather than categories for prizes, this time we will do a multi level judging for a first second and third place. The plugins should be officially submitted through email and the Plugin Competition Blog should be used as a launching ground for plugin ideas, updates, development news etc. The plugins will be judged by a panel of at least three judges with Ajay and myself taking two of the spots. I hate herding judges and will probably hand pick one or two more people.

All code must be GPL and should be available for download through the Competition Blog. The plugins can be modified and tweaked till the last day of the competition or until the author sends us an email with the final version of the code. Plugins can also be made available through the WordPress Extend pages and linked back from the blog. In essence, the Plugin Competition Blog is the vehicle of communication for all contestants.

Some relevant details:

  • Running time for competition = 2 months starting the 1st of June till the 31st of July.
  • True WordPress plugins only. No manual modifications can be required of users.
  • You cannot submit plugins that have been released already.
  • All plugins require documentation as in the WordPress Extend pages.
  • Preliminary support for the plugin has to be provided to the public.
  • Any and all prizes/controversies/issues will be judged and decided at my sole discretion.

More details to be added with time.

Stay tuned.

    Hey Mark: Very interesting timing. I love the idea of a competition. As a matter of a fact, I’ve sent you an email (via your contact form) related to this.

  3. Pallab (6 comments.) says:

    Oh great. I am sure we would get some wonderful plugins.

  4. Amanda (3 comments.) says:

    I emailed a prize sponsorship hopefully it will get in as one of the prizes!

  5. Carthik (1 comments.) says:

    Links to the Plugin competition blog throughout the post would have been great. Looking forward to the turnout and the prizes this time.
    Good luck, Mark.

    Thanks for the offer Amanda. Carthik, I added the link. I wanted to clean it up some, but it looks good as it is. :)

    Which version of GPL, and why must it be copyleft? Are more permissive licences like BSD-new and MIT/Expat forbidden?

  8. Patrick Havens (14 comments.) says:

    The plugin blog should be having errors then. :)

    I’ll go back and visit it later… and see what has been going on.

  9. keith (10 comments.) says:

    awesome, i just started a new plugin a few days ago.

    i think it will be pretty interesting when i’m finished!

  10. Alex (1 comments.) says:

    Come On, create a “Quote this Comment” Plugin ;)

  11. Techie Buzz (3 comments.) says:

    Great news I am working on a idea for a cool plugin and will definitely enter this competition.

    Thanks for the info Ajay.

  12. johnbillion (1 comments.) says:

    I think we’ll see much higher quality and innovativeness in plugins created for this competition. The WordPress plugin architecture and WordPress itself has come a very long way since the last competition back in 2005.

  13. Joshua says:

    I’m in the middle of creating a plugin at this moment. And since many people know about, I just have to ask: Will this plugin entry be eligible?

    Also, can we submit multiple entries?

    Thanks for setting this up.

  14. Runa (1 comments.) says:

    Great idea, I will follow the competition looking for some new good plugin!

  15. Elliott C. Bäck (1 comments.) says:

    I don’t really want to upload my plugin to WP Extend, or fill out their proprietary plugin readme…. can you waive that requirement?

  16. Mark Ghosh (386 comments.) says:

    Elliot, it is not required to upload to Extend and a readme is required, not necessarily the kind from Extend.

  17. Matt Keegan (2 comments.) says:

    Best wishes to all who enter the contest. Personally, I would like to see some email list and form plug-ins developed. I know that there are a few out there, but I would like to see what people come up with.

  18. Alex (1 comments.) says:

    Another idea:
    Google Gears “WordPress plugin”

  19. tridianto (1 comments.) says:
