The Style Contest

Six Apart, Adobe and Style Mas­ter spon­sors The Style Con­test. So what is it exactly about? Well, plain and simple—because “Design matters.”


Design­ers are the unsung heroes of the blo­gos­phere. Their work allows users to express a char­ac­ter, theme and per­son­al­ity with their blogs.

The Style Con­test was cre­ated to enable the design com­mu­nity to indulge and explore the con­tri­bu­tion their exper­tise makes to the qual­ity of blog­ging tools and the user experience.

The con­test spon­sors share this sen­ti­ment, and have reflected their com­mit­ment in the prize pool val­ued at over $17,000.

Designers—-this con­test is for you. To thank you. To rec­og­nize you. To reward you.

But alas, it is mostly for MT, Type­Pad and Live­Jour­nal users (or those with expe­ri­ence with the three I’m guess­ing). To get more info about the what-when-where-who-how, you can check out the con­test rules over here. So get those chicken-scratch going and pen­cils sharp­ened up, the dead­line has been set for 15 May, 2006, 10:00 pm PST.

For those par­tic­i­pat­ing in CSS Reboot on May 1st, you might as well jump in as the con­test is said to have a total sum of $17,000. Not to men­tion, every con­tes­tant wins!


Update: 5/10/06
Sub­mis­sion Dead­line Extended to June 5th

    We’ve taken sev­eral steps to model the con­test off the CSS Zen Gar­den so that you do not need any expe­ri­ence with any of the plat­forms to cre­ate a design. There is a list of sam­ple HTML files that you can design to. Hope that helps :)
