WordPress CSS Competition

Alex King is sponsoring a CSS competition for WordPress.

Last week, I released a CSS Style Switcher hack that lets visitors easily change the look of the standard WordPress install by swapping out the CSS stylesheet. This is a great first step, but it would be even better if there were a number of different styles out there for people to use.

To this end, I’m sponsoring a CSS Style Competition for WordPress. Please blog about this to help spread the word. 🙂

I tossed my hat in, not to win the competition, but to fund it. I don’t want kudos for that; I just want to sweeten the pot so good designs come from it.


  1. Your design must be an original work and you must release it under the GPL license (you retain copyright).
  2. You can enter as many different designs as you want.
  3. Your design must be for the default WordPress 1.0.1 template.
  4. The styling should be done using cross-platform CSS techniques and can include images, etc. following the structure used for my CSS Style Switcher hack.
  5. Designs I deem to be offensive will not be included.
  6. You must submit your entry by 11:59pm PST, Friday February 6, 2004.
  7. Winners will be announced on Monday, February 9, 2004.

Throw your hat in the ring!
