WordPress Sandbox Designs competition

There is a new WordPress theming competition for all you css gurus and it sounds quite interesting. I am certainly interested in giving it a go myself.

The current prizes are…

  • 1st prize: US$500
  • 2nd prize: US$300
  • 3rd prize: US$200

These prizes may increase based upon how much interest there is in prize sponsorship. There are also other prizes such as books and web hosting that are being donated by various bloggers around the interweb. You can read the full details on the competition website.

And what do you have to do for the money? All that’s required is for you to design a skin for the sandbox theme. You don’t need to do any php or html, it’s entirely css and image based.

As I said above. I am rather interested in this. I have very little free time these days but this sounds interesting, and the chance to win $500 would be nice :)



  1. Excellent. Thanks for the write-up.

    I very much hope you plan to participate. I would love to have as many 9rules members as possible involved as I’m a big fan of the community.

    So good luck! ;-)
