WordPress Plugin Competition Updates

WordPress Plugin Competition

The WordPress Plugin Competition is rapidly headed towards a fantastic close. If you were planning on entering a plugin, get registered on the Plugin Competition Blog and post your entry there. Remember, in order to be considered as an entry into the competition, you have to post an entry on the blog and send in the final code to me via email by July 31st. Some fantastic entries have already been released for the competition and we have about $1000 in cash and other cool sponsored prizes. Thanks to all the sponsors and the donors. There is still time to throw in a few bucks to help sweeten the pot (look for the ChipIn Widget).

I have also added a rating feature for the entries on the Competition Blog. If you have not rated your favorite plugins, head over to the Plugin Competition Blog and help decide the best plugins. The ratings can have a significant impact on the final outcome of the competition. Also, since there have been a few questions on this issue, I would like to make it clear that as an entrant into the competition, you may release your plugin anywhere you like as long as you post your intentions on the plugin blog. There are no other restrictions on release as long as you follow the rules.

Also of interest to the WordPress aficionado is the Sandbox Designs Competition run by Scott. Last date for that competition is July 29th.

    There are lots of good resources to get you started, Jenny. Check out this list of articles on how to get started.

    And Mark! I haven’t forgotten about you. I’ll keep good on my promise — after this competition business has concluded! ;)
