The competition is centered around expanding SunPress. This could be a plugin, a theme, a widget, nothing is off limits. The contest will end on February 16th. If you win but are unable to accept the Macbook Air as the prize, you’ll receive the cash equivalent. All entries must be created under the GPL License.

Hot in the heels of our own WordPress Plugin Competition (of which the results should be declared very soon), the folks at WPMU.org are running a WordPress MU plugin competition! The competition is already very much underway, with almost US$1500 worth of prizes already pledged and 8 great plugins submitted, ranging from XML-RPC add ons to simple domain mapping. And there’s still a month to go (entries close September 24th), so get your MU hats on and submit your best and brightest! The process is much the same as at Weblog Tools Collection. Plugin authors can register at the site and write up their own plugins for publication, guidelines and more on that can be found here. Then there will be prizes (and some rather snazzy badges) for judged and peoples choice winners and ranking entries. If you’re interested in adding to the prize pool, Andrew and James would love […]

WordPress Plugin Competition Q&A

How do I start writing on the Plugin Blog and submit my ideas for feedback from readers? After you have registered yourself on the Plugin Blog or if you already have a registration but do not have author permissions, please contact us with your details and a little information about the plugin(s) you are planning to enter into the competition and we will enable your account. This is a security precaution and we apologize for any inconvenience. When should I submit my plugin? We recommend that you submit your plugin to us at the end of the competition. This will give you enough time to test the plugin for any bugs and resolve them. You will have time to look into feature requests from your visitors. This will also ensure that you don’t need to submit multiple bugfixes to us. We prefer receiving a single final version for our records. […]

99 designs is an interesting site. It fills a niche that I have carefully treaded in the past and have received negative feedback for (rightfully so). 99 Designs allows you to crowdsource your design needs. If an organization or an individual seeks a new design, they hold a “contest” of sorts using the tools built into 99 Designs and offer up some money for their project. Designers are then allowed to post entries for these and the contest holder is allowed to pick and choose the best design(s) and distribute the money based on the winning design. In the past designers have turned up their nose on design contests for a variety of reasons, most of which I agree with. However, the surprising thing about 99 Designs is the popularity of the site and the sheer number of designs that have been submitted for existing contest. Some of the work […]

After running around like a chimpanzee with its head cut off (check out the animatronics chimp from WowWee, thus the similie) with the last WordPress Plugin Competition, I would like to be better prepared. We are about to embark upon another WordPress Programming Competition (notice the change in the name) starting at the beginning of December and lasting through the end of May next year. Much of the competition will remain the same but I would like to give authors the chance to strut their stuff and get their code together and published and advertised for everyone to make a good determination. However, this post is about the judges. If you would like to be considered as a judge, please send me an email with a list of stuff that makes you eligible. Mark the subject as “WordPress Programming Competition Judge”. Though the judges’ names will not be made public, […]
